Michigan Laws for Non-Profit Bake Sales

A frequent question asked is “Do we need to have a food license to hold a bake sale for our non-profit?”.

The answer is no.  The Food Law of 200 established a new license exemption that affects charitable, religious, fraternal, and other non-profit organizations.

Part of the licensing exemptions covers:

Bake sales or potlucks run by a charitable, religious, fraternal or other non-profit organization and serving only home-prepared goods

This means that your non-profit bake sales is exempt from needing a food license.

Since the Michigan Department of Agriculture & Rural Development (MDARD) has the right to determine if you require a license if you feel you fall outside of these guidelines, it’s best to check if you are exempt.
