Not feeding guests?

Just wondering if I ABU.
Some friends are throwing a party. It's a big anniversary at a village hall and has been organised for months. They have lots of friends going. Most are having to travel quite a long distance and have booked hotels at £60+ for the night.
A few weeks back guests were told no drinks would be provided. Now it's clear they're not providing any food either.
I'm not really sure what the point is anymore. I would never arrange a party with no food or drinks! Do you think this is unreasonable?

God the only thing that would get me anywhere near a village hall is the promise of food. I am always shocked that anyone would not provide food at a party but remember one time being in Morrisons and the salad bar had a queue of very well dressed people lining up to get salads. Turns out they were all guests at a wedding where they had been since 10am and it had become clear there was to be no food at all

And then there will be those who don't understand or don't bother, proffering their polystyrene cup in the direction of your bottle, and dipping their greasy fingers in your crisp bag.
Set yourself up with a wine box and an oversized scotch egg and growl at anyone who comes near....
Do you need to bring your own chair too?

I think that's monumentally rude. Even if you were really struggling for money it would be doable to ask your closest family and friends to bring a dish each to cobble together a buffet. Or even tell people they could contribute to the buffet if they wanted to bring something. Even if you can't afford financially the effort to organise something is appreciated.
But just crisps is very rude.
