Southwest Airlines is rather cryptic about its inflight food, providing the following info on its website–

Peanuts or pretzels are always complimentary as well as an assorted list of non-alcoholic beverages. Cocktails, beer, and wine may also be purchased onboard…
Additional snacks are available on longer flights.
