Call to Action for Florida Home-Based Bakers
Just an FYI!
Here is a recent update on the progress of the Florida Cottage Food Law. The Florida Food Freedom Act had a Senate sponsor but was not able to get a House sponsor. Under Florida law, a bill must have both a Senate and House sponsor to be considered. There's a chance a similar version of this year's bill might be introduced in the next legislative session which starts in January 2011.If you want to get on the mailing list and get updated on relevant legislation in Florida, you can go to our website at www.farmtoconsumer.org and click on "Join Mailing List" in the left panel.Let me know if you have other questions.Pete Kennedy, Esq. - PresidentFarm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fundphone 941-349-4984 /

I highly encourage Florida bakers to contact their House Representatives to support the Act in Jan. 2011, it's really not to soon to start calling!!!
