March 27 is a Big Day for Cottage Food Laws in California

Baking from Home

I Am Talking to You.

Pay Attention Californians, if you have been waiting for the opportunity to bake at home for profit, you need to mark March 27th on your calendar. If you are not sure what the cottage food laws are, you can read a lot about it here on my blog.

A lot of people will benefit from making it legal to bake from home and make money doing it. It is a great business for stay at home moms, baby boomers, and everyone in between. For those of you who live in California, it could soon be legal to do just that. If you haven’t made your voice heard, now is the time to speak up. You can sign the California Petition by clicking on the link.

I have a quote for the Sustainable Law Center the tells you the details about why March 27th is so important to their movement.

The California Homemade Food Act (AB 1616)
has been assigned to the Assembly Health Committee and will be heard on March 27. AB 1616 would make it legal to sell homemade non-potentially hazardous foods such as baked goods, jams, dry nut, herb, tea mixes and other non-perishables prepared without all the high costs and red tape of commercial kitchens.

With this important committee hearing coming up on March 27, right now is an excellent time to contact your legislators in Sacramento to ask for their support.

Visit our Take Action page to find contact info for your representatives in Sacramento, sample letters, and a phone script. Please note that the bill is authored by Assemblymember Mike Gatto to help identify it.

Be sure to sign the online petition to show your support and include your email when you sign to automatically receive occasional updates about the campaign and further opportunities to support it as it progresses.

For those who live in other states that don’t currently have those laws in place, you should check out what and how California has been doing. It would be great if it were a viable business opportunity for folks across the country. A better future for you and your family could be just as close as your oven. I would love to hear your comments
