    not a teacher.

    1) I do not believe there is such a thing as a "trip of food delivery". Does it mean that somebody should deliver food twice?

    If so, I would say:
    "1) The delivery person still owes me two food deliveries before he can be off today."
    2) See 1)
    3) correct.
    4) Correct.

    1&2: You can just say "deliveries" if it is understood that he is delivering food.
    3: You can say "We went on an outing." "Out on an outing" is redundant.
