Home-cooked meals are made in the most hygienic way and with the freshest ingredients. Research made by the Johns Hopkin School of Public Health revealed that “People who frequently eat home-cooked meals are healthier and consume fewer calories than those who cook less”. On September 18, 2018, California’s bill (AB 626), which allows for microenterprises home kitchen operations, was passed into law and went into effect on 1st January 2019.
The law allows people to cook from their homes and sell directly to the public. However, there are some requirements to be met to use this law. Some of which are making and selling your food on the same day, selling directly to customers, not selling more than 60 meals per week and staying under the $50000 annual sales limit.
