Food entrepreneurs in California cannot legally sell products that are cooked in a home kitchen. Recently proposed “cottage food” legislation would allow individuals to sell some types of food produced in home kitchens directly to consumers. Hear about the proposal from both the small-business and public-health perspective with Christina Oatfield, Sustainable Economies Law Center, and Richard J. Lee, San Francisco Department of Public Health. Co-sponsored by 18 Reasons and Kitchen Table Talks. Cost $10. This event will be held at 18 Reasons (3674 18th Street). Register at
