    This doesn't make sense to me. No such single word exists. Could you be a bit clearer as to what you're looking for?

    I think you mean people who move around and, not having conventional homes, cook (if they do) and eat outdoors.
    I think you may mean gypsies, but other words for "wanderers" are
    hobo
    vagrant
    tramp
    itinerant
    drifter
    bum

    These are good. I might add "nomad."
    Here in Toronto we have people living on the streets, and we call them "homeless people," or just "the homeless."
    I didn't understand the original question because to me "dine out" means to eat at a restaurant.

    cheers
