Yes this is possible.

Speak to us and inform us the situation. We will find a way around it for you.

Do I have to eat Breakfast and Dinner every day?

Those meals will all be provided for you but you are under no obligation to eat everyday.

The key is communication. Tell you family if you plan to be out or not home for a meal in advance.
