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.”

  • Guess what's for dinner? It's a condor asking.

    Marti Jenkins, propagation manager at The Peregrine Fund, takes us behind the scenes at the California condor breeding facility south of Boise. See how she keeps an eye on the juveniles and parents in their nests, and accompany her as she distributes dinner so condors don't associate humans with food. Viewer beware: It's not gory, but condors are carnivores, and they eat meat.
