When is it "Le" rather than "Lei"?

Because it's an indirect object: I offer food TO HER.

Le is an indirect object pronoun here. Read about Italian indirect object pronouns here: http://italian.about.com/library/fare/blfare166a.htm

So literally it's "To her I (make an) offer of the food"?

Yes, offrire sth a sb. Note that del is a partitive article.

The hint says 'offer' or 'give', but 'I give her food' is not accepted?
