Some politicians in Pennsylvania are looking to exempt non-profit food preparation from our state’s onerous health laws:
A law that has been on the books in Pennsylvania since 1945 says food that is sold at fish fries, spaghetti dinners, bake sales or any other church or community organization fundraiser, has to be made in a commercial kitchen that passes federal inspection. None of the food for sale can be made in parishioners’ homes. According to Sen. Rich Kasunic, the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture never enforced the rule until recently.
Being able to serve food is an important part of running a successful match.Â Competitors are there all day, and it’s good to be able to feed them.Â This is something clubs, and I would argue even NRA, should consider getting behind.Â Especially to make sure shooting clubs are exempted as well as churches.Â Many clubs in our state are taking a chance serving food to members.Â We shouldn’t have to worry about that.
