What Is Bake Sale Insurance?

Insurance for bake sales is customizable liability coverage designed to help mitigate or eliminate unexpected out-of-pocket expenses from claims caused by your food business. Common issues that bake sale insurance can cover include bodily or personal injury and property damage.

Do You Need Insurance for a Bake Sale?


Though liability insurance may be the last thing on your mind when getting ready for a bake sale, selling your homemade goods comes with a unique set of risks. Consider these scenarios:

  • You’re selling chocolate chip cookies made with your family’s secret recipe. A customer eats them without realizing they contain peanuts and has a severe allergic reaction. They end up suing you for their medical expenses.
  • A customer slips and falls on some spilled frosting. They end up with a sprained ankle that requires medical attention. Now they’re claiming that you are responsible for their bills.
  • After eating your products, a customer gets food poisoning and ends up in the ER. You could be liable for any costs associated with their illness.

FLIP could help absorb some or all of the out-of-pocket expenses resulting from these scenarios. Bake sale insurance gives you a financial security net so that you can turn your focus to what matters most.
