Enact a Cottage Food Law in California

We’ve made real progress towards our goal of passing California’s cottage food law! Our bill, AB 1616, the California Homemade Food Act, is on the Governor's desk waiting to be signed!

But we really need your help! Governor Brown is being pressured by various interest groups, including some public health officials, to veto the bill so we really need to demonstrate the widespread grassroots support for homemeade food in California! Visit our campaign's TAKE ACTION page at the link below for a sample letter to the Governor and his mailing address:


Also, please consider making a donation to the Sustainable Economies Law Center at no matter how small, to help us continue our legal research, advocacy and building grassroots support around the state. Given our very low overhead, even a modest donation can go a long way towards ensuring that the California Homemade Food Act (AB 1616) will pass during this session of the legislature and be signed by the Governor this month.

Aside from our occasional email updates, you can find out more information on the bill and how you can help by visiting
