I believe this is a Society rule -- no personal gifts out of SCA funds, 
with special high-table gifts (or special royalty room food being 
considered a personal gift).

I think it falls under this statement in the local branch exchequer's 

2. Special occasion gifts to members purchased with SCA money are 
disallowed because of disallowed benefit to private individuals.
(CP III) If there is a desire to buy a special occasion gift, take up a 
private collection. Gifts are not prizes. Prizes require the recipient to 
complete some task in order to receive the prize. Gifts have no such 
pre-requisite task.
