Why Rawesome Foods does not need a license – a Civil Rights issue

There’s a tremendous amount of disinformation being put out on the internet about the Rawesome Foods raid, even by people who should know better. The most common complaint against Rawesome Foods is: Why don’t they get licensed?

The answer is because they are not a public store. Rawesome Foods is a private member club where members actually own a percentage of the cows, goats and farms that produce the raw dairy. The Rawesome Foods facility is merely a distribution point where people pick up the food they already own; food which they could have theoretically picked up at the farm, but it’s more convenient to bring it to a central distribution point.

This Rawesome Foods distribution point is a private location, not a public grocery store. The buyer’s club itself, from a legal point of view, is private behavior, not public behavior. And yet the state of California is aggressively trying to force Rawesome Foods to be licensed and regulated as a public grocery store, which it is not.

The key element here is that the state wants to collect sales tax on these foods when people pick them up from the Rawesome distribution point. That’s why the California Franchise Tax Board was secretly funding the prosecution of Rawesome Foods (http://www.naturalnews.com/033254_Rawesome_Foods_Lela_Buttery.html).

As usual, this is all about the state wanting its share of the pie (or the cheese, in this case). The state is horrified by the idea that people might enter into their own private ownership agreements of “farm shares” and then pick up their food without paying a state sales tax. And yet, in reality, no point-of-purchase “sale” is taking place at all. People are merely picking up the food they already own because they are partial owners of the farms, the cows, the goats and the chickens which naturally produce this food.
