5 € / uneaten meal. I don't have values from the past.

We can trust DDs to do that, but we cannot really expect the hostel to
trust them, can we?

They want rough numbers 4 weeks and exact numbers one week in advance.
They have an error margin, and they can probably heat up emergency
portions, but they don't want us to plan with those.

We'll see on 3 May…

Want to take over? ;)

It's really not complicated per se. The complication arises from the
fact that I am trying to negotiate a way by which we don't have to pay
for food we know we won't eat, and that's not easy to do.
