I did think about that last night when I was posting. And it's a valid point, he can use his own money to buy food. But when one stays with someone at the host's invitation, and all the rest of your party is getting food supplied from the host, it's a reasonable expectation that you will also have food supplied from the host, particularly when it was supplied before. But yes, valid point that he is capable of going to buy his own food. It's still an example of how she's trying to manipulate and coerce him.
