Food sales without a permit?

Food sales without a permit? What action is the County Environmental Health dept. going to take next, ban pot luck dinners, because we are sharing food without permits. This action has nothing to do with health and safety of the food, it is all about revenue and power. Now I can no longer give my produce to Mannah House. If this action is about safety, Then we will have to stop the sale of fruits and vegetables in the market until they are certified free from pesticide residue. "Many times those fruits and vegetables that are sold by the side of the road haven't been inspected and may have pesticides on them." I grow my vegetables organically and sustainabley without pesticides or herbicides and our chickens are free range. I give away much more than I sell. I was going to help people that wanted a garden with the physical labor if they agreed to give away at least 10% to manna house or another charity to help feed the poor. Now that is out. The is one of the most onerous actions I have seen. A pure power grab. If I purchased a permit when will the county perform tests on the produce? and will the results be made public?
