Your question was cut off but I can offer some insight. One of two things could be happening here - either she doesn't like what you are offering and is trying to discard of it - or she could be feeling insecure if there are other animals in the home and she is trying to cover her food. The latter is actually typical feral behavior - they cover their kill or food to prevent other animals from taking it. For my cats - I usually see this when I offer them a flavor they aren't too fond of - I call it flavor rebellion - and it's usually followed by howling.
If you have other animals in the house - try feeding her in another room or observe feeding time and see if anyone is making her feel uncomfortable. If not – try different foods and see if the behavior stops.
