  • yes, it is food, you can by anything food related as long as its not hot. By that I mean cooked, not spicy..You know the cooked chickens at the grocery store on display you just buy take home and cut up to eat, because they are ready to eat hot, you cant buy those types of foods.

  • You can buy any food product including spices, babyfood, deli items, food from the salad bar, candy, etc. You cannot by nonfood items and hot deli foods.
