Councillors should bring a packed lunch

Re “Councils, district health board meeting catering costs $225000 in two years” (NewsJanuary 13) In the 2018/19 financial year it was $90,500

Why is food being supplied at all during council meetings? Councillors and staff are on decent salaries. What is stopping them from bringing a packed lunch from home like the rest of us? In my view, it is because itn has become a perk of the job.

As for the regional council’s of explanation “low carbon catering …. organisational emission”, Well I might have to spend some time digesting that one.
