Join our Red Tape Cutting Events to celebrate Food Freedom in our state August 1-15. We’ll be in small towns, county fairs and farmers markets holding local Red Tape Cutting ceremonies wherever there’s local leadership and involvement to put together an event.


Think of this….20, 50, 100 feet of red tape unrolled with people along the length; each holding scissors. The leader says a few words – very few – and gives the signal. Everyone cuts their section of red tape – the symbolic breaking of the bonds which deter citizens from buying and selling delicious, homemade products.


Your local event can be as elaborate or as simple as you like. You can bring out American flags and wave to music. You can toast with tiny glasses of farm fresh milk. You can pass out samples of some of those previously “forbidden” foods. Invite local legislators who supported this important movement.


Many of you have asked how you can help. Here’s step one. Contact Food Freedom and volunteer to coordinate a local event – or assist someone with the event. We can supply the red tape – or find your own. We can help with the press, too.
