This supersedes "Meals and Refreshments" guidance issued in conjunction with the 2005 Appropriations Law Forum. This document is guidance regarding the proper use of appropriated funds for meals and light refreshments. The document states that, in general, an agency may not use appropriated funds to purchase food which is considered a personal expense without specific authority. There are exceptions in some circumstances, however, including exceptions for some awards ceremonies.
