Probably half of the people wearing the uniform today are being fed daily by for profit contractors.
They are asking for a bid for you to provide your product and services. You put you numbers together like you would for any organization that is that is looking to hire you. They're talking a lot of food and a lot of work; you have every right to make a profit.
Sure, you might donate your labor or reduce your mark-up for certain charity gigs, but the military is not a charity case.
Just my opinion...
