society. >> your can't has said you violated our laws and i did and now we're going to punish you. at the end they're saying let's let bygones be by gones and get yourself ready to go back into the world. >> reporter: the decision to let them drive themselves was not made lightly. >> we look at their disciplinary record, when they're getting released, how effectively they programmed while they were incarcerated. public safety is our number one goal. >> reporter: candace matthews-bash runs the community kitchen. the goal is to end hunger, so the food from class feeds a local women's shelter and the needy. another priority is giving people a second chance, which is why she agreed to allow the inmates. >> if we could actually work with folks before their release, talk about what it means to reenter society, teach skills that are definitely employable.
could we speed up the transition process. >> reporter: many leave with jobs already lined up, a major turning point for those transitioning back to real life. >> it's to society's advantage for us -- for people not to re siddiate. those are massive numbers and a big obstacle. anything you can do to shrink the numbers is a tax advantage. >> reporter: each of the students in the community kitchen attends for free. the price tag of $3500 per person is covered in part by the department of labor as well as donations. reporting from south philadelphia, katy zachary, nbc10 news. 5:27 on this saturday. volunteers get to work today in philadelphia and around the country for comcast cares day. nbc10's randy gyllenhaal is live at the bridesburg boys and girls club. >> reporter: a huge volunteer effort coming up here next. a big surprise for kids when they come back here on monday. today is the day to get out and do the outdoor yard work.
