Cottage Food Law and Supporting Home Bakers and Local Businesses

per Christina Oatfield:
 
 URGENT!! The Health Committee Chair, Senator Ed Hernandez, has indicated he will oppose the bill unless it is amended to remove the provision that allows home food producers to sell to local shops and restaurants. This is a really important part of the bill to preserve and we need to let him know that this is important to thousands of supporters across the state. Please call him and let him know that you as a food producer and/or consumer don't want this unnecessary restriction placed on the local sales of home made goods in the California Homemade Food Act (AB 1616). His Sacramento office number is (916) 651-4024. Call tomorrow TODAY during business hours if you can. If you can't, call whenever you can and leave a message.
