Ha! Oh, the future keeps sounding better and better.
As for the cards Chapel used, I see what you mean. Maybe they're personnel-specific cards, not food-specific cards. As in, everyone on board has a card, which you enter when you make your order, almost like a debit card. For the kids, those might have been spare or guest cards. That would also gel a little more with the idea of "diet cards", and I suppose the connected accounts could be altered as needed. Makes sense to me!
