“Say to Aaron: None of your seed throughout their generations who has a blemish may approach to offer the food of his God. Bible see other translations

“the food.” The Hebrew text is more literally, “bread,” but “bread” stood for food in general, and since there were meal offerings of grain, in this context “food” is the preferable translation. No priest who had a blemish was to make the sacrifices and offerings.
