I don't understand why "we" are paying the meal. Either they have sponsored
food, so the sponsor pays for the food, or they pay for themselves, for the
whole time they attend, I assume? "We" could save some money in case we knew
exact numbers, or we could avoid waste by not ordering too much food. As
much as I hate wasted food, but we would risk people go hungry. Is this
really worth saving maybe 150EUR per meal (in case we can keep the money
that others paid for the food)? Or am I missing something?
I liked how it worked in Vaumarcus, I think nobody complained when food was
running out when they came late for a meal, as they could have come earlier.
But maybe that works only at a remote location like Vaumarcus where no
outside people can wander in.
