SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - More than a dozen aspiring chefs graduated from a 12-week cooking program in Lincoln Park Wednesday, to the cheers of family members in the audience.  

The program is run by the non-profit, Kitchens for Good (KFG). The group says it “rescues” food before it’s thrown into the landfill.  

But KFG also rescues students -- many are former gang members, inmates or homeless.  

The group tries to give them a second chance. KFG says 90 percent of its students get jobs, averaging $13 an hour.
