Are drinks such as brewed coffee, juice from a pre-packaged bottle or lemonaid– to be sold at a home event. We will be selling handmade craft items, along with cookies and breads. Might we be allowed to ask for a donation for the drinks — that we would donate to a cause, but sell the craft and home-baked items for a profit? Fairfax County, VA. Thank you.

Can someone point me to a resource talking about selling salsa under the cottage food law? And specifically what types of events?

I am in Hampton Roads area of Virginia. Thanks!!
