Most swim meets have concessions on the site for lunch and sometimes breakfast. Some have shaded areas and some do not. Dress comfortably; most swim facilities do not have indoor areas to allow you to escape the heat. Check with parents who have previously attended a meet in a certain area and they will be able to describe the facilities for you. Several families bring tents and have them for shade.
