Support Virginia Food Freedom Bill HB 619 - Email House Ag Sub-Committee
Click here to watch video

The Virginia Food Freedom Act(HB 619) aims to allow direct sales of home- and farm-produced foods without burdensome regulations. Reintroduced and amended by Delegate Rob Bell, a subcommittee vote on HB 619 passed (4 to 3) on January 25th but pressure from the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS) is forcing a revote on February 1, 2016.

If you care about the freedom to choose the foods you want eat and oppose the over-reaching, over-regulated power of the government to dictate what foods you can purchase...

Sign this EMAIL petition:
I urge you to vote YES on HB 619 to allow direct sales of home- and farm-produced foods without burdensome regulations.

Add your own comments and follow up with phone calls to members of the Virginia House Agriculture Sub-Committee. Your message can also be sent to a local newspaper editor if you choose.

Passage of HB 619 will enable people to make and sell more foods, such as pumpkin pies and quiche, directly to consumers without state inspections of private homes!

Revised 1/28/2016 - see
