The money is to be allocated to food iteslf (which is capital) vs. program spending.

I'm still struggling with this, as it would seem to me that by any objective measure, food for a food program is an operating cost rather than a capital cost such as upgrading a kitchen to meet public health standards.

We are asked to submit capital projects that are primarily a one-time expenditure requiring little in the way of ongoing operating and maintenance costs. The fact that these programs keep coming back year after year for ongoing funding is in itself contrary to the criteria that the rest of us are expected to abide by.

It's frustrating for those of us involved in the community who are discouraged from submitting funding requests for programs we'd like to implement, to see these food programs topping the list every year.
