What is the minimum requirement for a meal? Can a loaf of bread torn to pieces and handed out be a meal? What about a shared bag of jerky or chips? What is the exact definition of a "meal" here. I love to eat and I'd be happy to be a cook, I just want to know what's really required of me to make these meals. How long does a meal last? Such as if the food made for the meal isn't eaten all at once, how long can it be stored with the effect present?
