Small Town Rejects Federal Interference, Declares Food Sovereignty

• thenewamerican.com

As federal agencies like the Environmental Protection Agency and the Food and Drug Administration continue to enjoy vast regulatory overreach, a tiny town in Maine decided enough is enough. Approximately 100 residents of Sedgwick, Maine unanimously approved a so-called food sovereignty initiative at a March 5 town meeting, which will allow food producers in the town to sell food without federal and state regulatory interference.

Food Safety News reports:

“Titled “The Ordinance to Protect the Health and Integrity of the Local Food System,” Sedgwick’s four-page document invokes the town’s right to self-governance, and states that local producers and processors may sell food to consumers without licensing.”
