Breakfast is not a "standard expectation" in the SCA. It is a courtesy that
is usually performed at camping events or events that start very early and
there is no breakfast spot nearby.
I guess you just ran into one of those unwritten Meredies Kingdom rules or
someone had a brain fart/ignorant moment and decided to have breakfast,
using the "expected" as an excuss for their whim.

On another but related topic. The first feast I did on my own I had done all
the research, planning and most of the purchasing (using up most of the
budget) when I was informed, the weekend before the event, that I was also
to prepare breakfast for Saturday and Sunday, all out of the same budget.
I questioned this I was informed that it was a standard expectation in our
Kingdom (Meridies). I satisfied this commitment but it was an extremely long
and if not for a very dedicated staff feast would have suffered. I have done
a couple of more small feasts since then and have made accommodations for
breakfast. Is this a standard practice throughout the SCA? I find that this
impacts my focus on feast and would like to find some way to pass on
breakfeast. Should I consider a written contract that specifies my
"services" for for
