Food/Beverage Procurement

Zach McGinnis

Are there any cities that have a policy that allows for city dollars to be used to purchase food/beverages to help boost staff morale or celebrate birthdays, holiday parties, weddings, or similar functions? We are currently considering updating our policy which states the following:

As a general rule, City funds should not be used for food and beverage expenses for:
(a) Staff department/division meetings held during normal work hours.
(b) Celebrations such as birthdays, holiday parties, weddings, bridal and baby showers, and
similar functions.
(c) Staff morale.
(d) General office “coffee” and “water” funds.
(e) In accordance with PSM, reimbursement for meals of Advisory Board members is
not permitted. However, refreshments may be purchased on occasion.
