“The Lafayette Food Junkie Show,” which airs from 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. on Sunday nights here on Newstalk 96.5 FM KPEL, gives Lafayette and the Acadiana area its own show dedicated to the food we all love to enjoy and talk about!

On Sunday’s show, Tiffiany Decou, “The Lafayette Food Junkie,” and Chef Zach Doise with “LaStreat” food truck talked about La. House Bill 247, which concerns whether it should be legal to sell raw milk. They also spoke about La. House Bill 775, which would repeal the Louisiana Cottage Food Law, which "currently allows an individual to make certain foods, including baked goods, jams, jellies, preserves, and others, in their home and sell them directly to the public without the burden of meeting all of the state’s rigorous requirements for food processors."
They spoke about all of this with Daphne Olivier, a dietitian who owns "My Food Coach." They discussed with listeners the government's role in all of this, whether it's right for them to step in like this.
