For all of you that are teaching out of your home, please beware of the following, May sound silly but beware!
Check with your home-owners insurance to be sure you are covered incase someone gets hurt on your
property. Yea, I know you have basic home owners insurance but it is not intended for teaching food courses
out of your home OR selling food made in your home....If anyone gets hurt in ANY WAY: cut, burn, slip, even
stub their toe can cause a law suit. (Have had several friends who got sued over simple things even from
so called friends).
Check with local Health/food sanitation dept: Depends on the state you live in. Most states: You CAN NOT
MAKE AND SELL food items made in your home kitchen. You have to have another kitchen that was
inspected and passed inspection. Most of you won't do this but beware, you are liable if someone turns you in
to the health department or city. (It could even be your neighbors who turns you in because they don't like
seeing the extra cars parked around their home.) This is what happened to a friend. She was shut down and a
heavy fine was imposed upon her. I also know of someone that has been making cakes, cookies, cupcakes,
etc. from of her home kitchen and sells them. Someone just sued her and her homeowners insurance will not
cover her as they were not aware of her little business out of her home. She will pay dearly now.
