On turkey day, we celebrate all for which we're thankful for.
We, as Americans, also do a lot of eating.
A former Boise restaurant owner no longer cooks up his signature dishes downtown, but he still serves the homeless with a hot meal every Thanksgiving holiday.
On Thursday, Max Mohammadi cooked a ham and gathered up other food donations from generous business owners to feed those who may otherwise have gone without a meal. This included a pick up from the downtown Boise Old Chicago location. They provided 15 pizzas and 90 footlong hot-dogs for the feast.
"My hope is to see the peace on earth and that is really what it [Thanksgiving] is all about is to keep people in harmony... because it's a beautiful place, you have one life to live and, you know, inspire others," the homeless advocate said.
Mohammadi's tradition, which is nearing three decades now, inspired the creation of a local organization called Maxsgiving. It helps raise money for nonprofits. For more information, visit http://maxgiving.com .
