Your lawmakers listened — say thanks!
You did it! You helped turn a bill into a law!
Bet you didn’t know you had so much power– but you do when we all act together.
This week Governor Pritzker signed the Home-to-Market Act, creating smart new regulations for hundreds of small farms and food businesses working from their home kitchens, enabling them to reach new customers and grow their business. The bill passed unanimously in May.
A vibrant and healthy cottage food industry in Illinois is a starting point for a vibrant and healthy local food system.
Whether you took action urging your lawmaker to support the Home to Market Act, joined our Local Food Farmer Caucus to help draft and negotiate the legislation, shared a social media post or email about the issue with your friends, participated in our Virtual Lobby Day, or made a donation to support our work — your action made a difference.
Because of you, lawmakers listened.
