Mnemonic help: 館 vs 官

I’m having a bit of trouble distinguishing public building 館 from government 官. Any good mnemonics to differentiate their meanings?

If the public building is made of gingerbread or something, you can eat 食 it, but no matter what government is made of, you can’t eat it

if you think of government as people, I suggest remembering it’s taboo to eat people

I hope that helps!
