1) A food event is an occasion when food is eaten.
2) A structured event is a social occasion organized by rules concerning time, place, and sequence of action.
3) Food eaten as a part of a structured event is a meal.
4) A snack is an unstructured food event without any rules of combination and sequence.

The sociability of eating, the fact that a meal is shared with other people, is often considered as a necessary feature of meal definition.
(Johana Makela)

After lecture, a group of us decided to structure an occasion during which we would eat food. We agreed that at 12 o'clock we would meet at the Adelaide club, order our food, and when it arrived, eat our meal. I got held up at the library, and just as I was seated everyone else remembered other things to do and jumped up and left.

Snack time.
