The Robert M. Kerr Center for Food and Agricultural Products at Oklahoma State University will host a free training designed to teach participants about the Home Food Freedom Act from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. June 2 at Pawnee Nation College . Lunch is included.

The Homemade Food Freedom Act allows a wide range of food and homemade products to be sold outside the home within Oklahoma’s borders and without a license from the health department. By law, annual product sales cannot exceed $75,000.

“There is a lot of interest in this new cottage law,” said workshop instructor Ravi Jadeja, FAPC Food Quality and Safety Specialist. “We are grateful to have received a grant to help teach others the parameters of the new law and how to practice food safety. Producing food for others is a big responsibility.

Workshop participants who reside in Pawnee, Osage, or Creek counties are eligible to receive a $100 stipend after course completion. Participants must provide proof of residence on the morning of the workshop. Registration is limited to 30 participants.

Register now for this unique event. For further questions, contact Karen Smith, FAPC Workshop Coordinator, at [email protected] or call 405-744-6277.

The FAPC, part of OSU’s Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources Division, helps discover, develop, and deliver technical and market information that will stimulate and support the growth of value-added food and agricultural products and the processing in Oklahoma.
