I have a headcanon/sort of actual canon that in the Star Wars universe there's a type of general food rations that are cheap, easily stored, and tolerable/nutritional for the widest range of species possible. Few really like it, but pretty much anyone can find it edible and remain healthy living mostly off of it. So it's ideal for people who spend most of their time in space, or live on inhospitable planets beyond the busiest trade routes (e.g., Rey on Jakku).

The Ghost's galley would have a lot of this, given that it's cheap and convenient and requires next to no preparation, and I can't see any of the crew being particularly interested in cooking. When it's possible and they can afford it, they'll also buy fresh food, though this can mean negotiating depending on what crewmembers prefer/are able to digest. (For example, Twi'lek tastes tend to run toward what humans would consider extremely bitter.) There's also a lot of cheap caf. Hera also has a secret stash of goodies like higher-end caf and occasionally alcohol that she digs into from time to time.
