Meeting: AB626 MicroEnterprise Home Kitchen Operations

Saturday, March 26, 10:30am – 12pm

An informational gathering to organize adopting bill AB626, to legalize the sale of permitted home cooked meals in Santa Cruz County.

Join us on Saturday, March 26th from 10:30-12pm at our beautiful farm located in Aptos for an informational gathering and discussion on getting bill AB626 adopted into Santa Cruz County. This is also referred to as the “Home Cooking” bill because it legally allows people to cook and sell meals from their permitted home kitchens.

We’ll be discussing all aspects of the bill and how this new home business model referred to as “MicroEnterprise Home Kitchen Operations”, (MEHKO’s), allows a legal, economical & socially just “path to entry” into the food business.

To date, eight counties in CA. & the City of Berkeley have adopted this bill with more on the way! This is an exciting time for the expansion of small artisanal food businesses that are concerned with the safety and nutritional values of our food systems. MEHKO’s are a new business model that values fostering good citizenship while building healthy communities through home cooked food that supports our local economy.

This event is held in the farms beautiful outdoor event area with social distancing and county covid regulations observed. Masks are optional.

This gathering is free and open to the public with an attendance limit of 30 people.
