    Does anyone know if the proposed bill below will allow our kids to have lemonade stands without a TX food permit? If so we should call our state senators and representatives in support of it.

    On March 16th an important hearing may be happening in Austin concerning the new Food Freedom Bill ( HB 75/ SB 237, Health and Human Services Committee hearing) introduced last week. Besides legalizing the distribution of raw milk, it will also allow cottage industry homemade jams, pickles, breads, etc. to be produced without a commercial kitchen license (if sales are under $250K). This is an important issue for our local food economy!!! Think about all those good homemade items brought to the farmer’s market!!!
