  • What's a Cottage Food Vendor?
    Florida law allows individuals to use their unlicensed home kitchens to produce for sale certain foods that present a low risk of foodborne illness. Cottage food operators can produce and sell these products directly to consumers without obtaining a food permit from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Gross sales for a cottage food operation must not exceed $250,000 annually.

  • What's with the colorful flag?
    If you haven't guessed, I'm Puerto Rican and part of the LGBTQIA+ community. I believe it's important show representation in everything that you do. It's not to preach or force someone to agree with my views, but to show that I'm a normal person like everyone else. That I have goals, dreams, etc. and just want to be treated like with respect and dignity.
  • Why do you donate to Working Food?
    Cooking saved me and I know that there are kids that are just looking for something to give them direction. As a former "at-risk" youth, I know the importance of having opportunities and Working Food has an amazing program offering education and training to underserved communities in the Gainesville, FL area.
