"Coqui cibum parant" should also be accepted.

could cibos be used here as well?

Do they make "food", or do they make "dinner" (cenam)?

Food can't be made, you can't make an apple, so they prepare a meal.

Source: a 1692 dictionary Latin-French, where we can find "cibum facere", translated by" preparing food" (implied: to be eaten as a meal, cooking). https://frama.link/Dictionnaire_francois
