There's usually snackage, although it depends on who is coordinating the 
spread what there actually is. I've seen everything from a plate of 
cookies and a bowl of almonds to what I would call a full buffet.

I was asked to provide munchies for a vigil last summer for a lady who has 
a 9th c. Irish persona. So I was already working with limited materials, 
plus it's hot in July, plus she is hypoglycemic so no sugar. I provided 
dried plums and raisins, hazelnuts, walnuts, gingerbread (honey is ok), 
darioles made with Splenda, and shortbread made with sugar for guests. 
Someone else was responsible for bringing fresh fruit, which is why teeny 
bananas showed up on the vigil table. There was also bread, butter, honey, 
and her husband provided fresh cheese.

Unfortunately they stuck the vigil tent way out of the way so not many 
people came by nor did they eat much. I think I still have a little 
shortbread left in the freezer. ;-)
