Putting Local Surplus Fish to a Great Use

A Partnership between Kitchens for Good and Fish. Food. Feel Good.

Here at Kitchens for Good, we are all about finding ways to use local unused resources to feed hungry families in our community. That’s why we are so excited about our new partnership with Fish. Food. Feel Good.(F3G).  F3G is a like-minded organization that collects locally caught unwanted sport caught fish and distributes it to hunger relief organizations throughout San Diego. Just recently F3G donated 250lbs of Yellowfin Tuna to Kitchens for Good located in Chollas Creek, San Diego. With that ample amount of locally caught fish, we were able to produce 1000 delicious meals for the people in our surrounding communities.

Chef Theron and our Culinary Program students created a variety of remarkable meals such as tuna salad, tuna fish sandwiches, and grilled tuna steaks. These meals were provided to after school programs, senior centers, and homeless dinners. Let’s just say the needed intake of Omega 3’s were highly successful. Our clients had rave reviews!

We’re extremely grateful to organizations like Fish. Food. Feel Good. that help us with our mission to close the gap between unwanted food items and hungry families in need. Todd Bluechel, who grew up fishing locally and who founded F3G in 2010, noticed sometimes his fellow sport fishermen had extra unwanted fish. Wanting to do something with this nutritious product Todd created F3G a first of its kind charity. Todd is quoted as saying: “I’ve been fishing these waters for over 30 years and there comes a time when you have to stop complaining and take action.”

We sure are glad Todd took action!  Thanks to this creative yet simple idea, F3G donates fish to partnering charities, like Kitchens for Good, who convert it into nutritious and delicious meals that feed over 80,000 annually here in San Diego.
