Airlines Meals, How Far In Advance Are They Made?

Could someone pls tell me, on average, how far in advance is a total aircraft food service prepared.
You would like to think that is was prepared that morning for your afternoon flight but I suspect I could be wrong here.

Who Cleans The Cockpit?

Question,
After a long haul flight does the cockpit get cleaned like the rest of the cabin area or is this "off limits" to aircraft cleaners?
Perhaps the crew don't mess up like us paying passengers.
