I got this email from one of the folks over at SELC and wanted to pass it on to all of you. Currently 23 states have Cottage Food Laws. The most recent states to enact these laws are Arizona, Arkansas, South Dakota, Texas, Washington, & Florida. Help make the cottage food laws a reality in California.
"The Sustainable Economies Law Center is launching the Cottage Food for California campaign!
As part of a growing movement to localize food systems and stimulate small-scale food production, we are proposing that the California State Legislature allow for the sale of certain home-made food products, namely: baked goods (but with no cream or meat fillings), jams and jellies, candy, granola and other dry cereal, popcorn, waffle cones and pizzelles, nut mixes, chocolate covered non-perishables (such as nuts and dried fruit), roasted coffee, dry baking mixes, herb blends, and dried tea.

They need support to make this happen!"
