41. Sounds like a very nice assortment

I worked on 4 pro sets in 2019 and one student film:

Student film (in an AirBnb with permission): scrambled eggs and bacon cooked there by the Producer, bagels and donuts from Dunkin Donuts, cut fruit and berries. Lunch: Subway subs, nice hummus, pita, apples, Indian take-out, tikka masala, saag paneer

Succession (HBO on location with 200+ people): 2 big buffet lines with everything labeled, vegan options, etc Probably 24 different options

Billions, Monsterland and another HBO -- scrambled eggs, sausage, hash browns, pancakes, bacon, toast, fruit
all day: fruit, energy bars, coffee, tea, water, nuts and candy, cookies,
on Billions I got the crew dinner -- a beef carving station, fish, chicken, a chef they all knew by name and liked and who also played DJ.

Productions move around like little armies and about 1/3 of all crew members are military veterans. I do it 6 days a year for fun but one crew of about 40 people had been at working 12 to 16-hour days for 55 days straight -- all period (1940s) and lots of locations. Brutal stuff for a crew -- dressing massive sets, blocking traffic, dealing with parking and angry residents. Then pack it all up drive down the road and do it all again somewhere else. I worked the last day of that shoot and had so much respect for all of them. When you're tired and not due to sleep in your own bed for a while lovingly prepared food makes a big impact.
