Every afternoon, six days a week, Max Mohammadi collects leftover food from Downtown restaurants and delivers them to homeless people and shelters. This immediate and personal kind of interaction is important to him. To meet the people behind an issue — like, say, homelessness; to know their names, know them as human beings and to lend a hand also means to taking their struggles to heart. As he distributed breads and muffins to City Light, he meets a little girl named Lili who reminds him of his granddaughter. “This is a great blessing,” he says. “That girl made my day.”
