If you are not going to give your child money then let them know. Make sure they are aware they can't buy anything. Tell them it is rude to beg for money or items from others.
If you can't afford to pack them lunch then keep them home. Do not expect others to give your child their lunch or for the chaperone to buy them lunch. It is rude and irresponsible.

My childs school solved that by making a rule.  Each child brings a lunch and NO child buys anything on the field trip.  Of course my child would never ask another adult for money either.........

Fair is subjective. You could also argue its not fair that some kids get to buy things while others don't.

Our school gives parents the option to send a lunch or have the school send a brown bag lunch.
