Missouri Senate endorses looser food prep requirements

JEFFERSON CITY — Nonprofit organizations could prepare food in private homes to serve at public charitable events under legislation endorsed by the Missouri Senate.

Current law requires such food must be prepared in a kitchen regulated by state health authorities. But the measure given first-round approval Monday would allow nonprofit groups to forgo that requirement if they notify people at the event.

The bill would not apply to events in St. Charles, Jefferson and St. Louis Counties, as well as St. Louis City.

The legislation needs one more vote before moving to the House. It is sponsored by Republican Sen. Mike Cunningham, of Rogersville.
