Senate Passes Food Freedom Bill

Mar 11, 2021 by AFP

COLUMBIA, SC – Americans for Prosperity-South Carolina (AFP-SC) today commended the Senate for passing S 506, a bill that expands the opportunity for home-based food production and direct-to-consumers sales.

AFP-SC Director of Grassroots Operations Candace Carroll released the following statement:

“Senators took a needed step to free our food, removing an unnecessary barrier preventing South Carolinians from selling homemade goods. This common-sense bill empowers entrepreneurs and small businesses who have suffered the past year due to the economic effects of COVID-19. We thank the Senate for supporting this bill and urge the House to swiftly send the bill to the governor’s desk.


States with the most comprehensive food freedom bills, Wyoming, North Dakota, and Utah, have reported no foodborne illness from a business operating under these laws.
