Federal Bake Sale Ban Set to Hit Schools This Fall | Ben Swann Truth In Media
June 30, 2014
This fall, new federal regulations are set to go into effect which will prohibit schools from allowing sweets and homemade items to be sold at bake sales.
For decades, underfunded programs within schools have relied on bake sales to raise money. Traditionally, popular items like homemade cupcakes, cookies, and other sweets have generated heaps of revenue, funding school clubs, sports teams' uniforms, and other academic essentials. However, The Wall Street Journal is reporting on new federal regulations, set to take effect this fall in many US states, that would so seriously limit bake sales as to render them ineffective, unprofitable, and pointless in most cases.
