I petition my Florida state legislators to enact a Cottage Foods bill authorizing the Department of Health and Senior Services and/or the Department of Agriculture to issue customized "Home Bakery" licenses to residential kitchens for the purpose of selling non-potentially-hazardous bakery products; such as, but not necessarily limited to: breads, cakes, doughnuts, pastries, buns, rolls, cookies, biscuits, and pies (except meat or cream pies).

This law will help create jobs for people who are out of work and for those who stay at home with their children. Licenses and permits cost money, which would bring in money for the entire state. This law will also add protection for those who have store front bakeries who would be able to conduct business from home if something were to happen to their business.
