I can honestly say that I have never ordered a pizza or snuck out for KFC in 
the middle of a feast.   I genuinely like to try the foods that the cooks of 
the Outlands offer up.  (Caerthe did a wonderful 3 course luncheon last year, 
IIRC, at a 12th Night.)

However, now that I have two children that are getting old enough to stay up 
and eat feast at an event, I do carry "emergency food" with my feast gear.  
Mainly, it is a loaf of homemade bread and some cheese or summer sausage.  Just 
something that will keep the kiddos content and not screaming and ruining 
everyone else's experience.  (THAT'S also the reason I haven't eaten many feasts 
in the last 6 years!  I know my kids' limits.)

I wonder if other adults carry their own "emergency food" in case they feel 
the need to "order in a pizza"?  I know some people around here carry olives 
and other small nibbles in case feast is delayed for some reason.
