Expense policies
Expenses must include a receipt showing the full cost of the transaction as well as all services/items purchased.
Please also give a short description of the purpose of the expense, for example "Food for weekly distribution"
Expenditures should be run by the Food4Life collective before spending money. If you're not sure whether your expenditure will be approved, check in the #materialneeds Slack channel before making the purchase.

Next, the request for reimbursement should be submitted here including:
- A title briefly describing what is being paid for. For example "Non-perishable food for distribution" or "Food transportation costs"
- A receipt which shows the items purchased and the total amount paid

Reimbursement is only available via Paypal, unless special arrangements have been made in advance.
