Dang, Kiri....I would have just told them to *bite* my flour-covered behind!
For our indoor events, we pretty much always have a lunch that's included in the site fee--we'll know that we have, say, an expected budget of $100 for lunch and $400 for the feast.  Or whatever.  Doesn't need to go into any separate lines on financial forms, other than the usual "food" line.

  I have gone through a time when I had problems getting the money I needed
  for the feast...there seemed to be a disconnect especially when it came to
  the mezze/side board that was available to everyone all day.  Our group
  refuses to understand the concept of "no off-board places" which meant that
  I had to find funding in what they gave me per person for on-board to cover
  the dayboard for another 50 - 75 people!  That was what I did the first
  year...and got severely chastised by the then B&B and Seneschale for not
  making a profit!  Then last year, they agreed to pay $1/head for those who
  were off-board, but I never got the money because they couldn't figure out a
  way to enter the amount in the financial report they had to turn into the
  Kingdom.  This meant that, not only was there no profit, a fair amount of
  money came out of my pocket!!  We're trying again this year.  They found a
  place to include it in the report, and have guaranteed me that there will be
  funding for the offboard people in the budget.  We'll see.  I've already
  told them that this is the last year I'll cook this event if this doesn't
