Hmmmmm ............... interesting.
I really don't know why a food or recreation budget isn't available. It's probably considered nonessential. Might be something to look into down the road. (Sorry for the duplication on that comment, too. Database issue on this end.)
The firefighters don't have a food budget. They pay for everything themselves. If they want things to cook for dinner, a TV, or a couch, or a basketball hoop, etc., they pool their personal money for it. They spend a good chunk of their lives at these stations, so they usually try to bring along some creature comforts. It's a misconception that everything is provided for them.
