Can someone help me interpret the law on home baked good for fundraisers?
I believe it says it is ok if it for a church sale.
Does it have to be for a church?Â I wanted to donate a cake to my son's school.Â They are having a Tricky Tray (Chinese Auction).Â The money raised benefits the school.
Would this be ok?
I think you probably need to tell us where you live as different countries, and even different states, have different rules.

Maybe you can donate a gift certificate instead of an actual cake?
Seems like that would be closer to "selling" than I'd like to be.
If I donate a cake people will bid on it (with tickets) and a winner will be drawn at random.
But since it is not for a church I am not sure if it is ok.
I donated a cake to my daughter's school raffle last year. Â Wasn't a problem. Â I wasn't legal yet...
Fundraisers for non-profit organizations are usually considered "occasional" events and no permit or license is necessary, If you're worried, call your local health department.Â
