I do most of my mid-week running in the evening after work, so I wouldn't change anything for race preparation. Normal lunch with a bit of carb, then snacking in the afternoon mainly on fruit, usually a banana around 5pm - easily digestible and a bit of an energy boost. Plus water and the odd cuppa tea, of course. 10k doesn't require much energy so if anything just make sure you don't eat too much in the couple of hours before. No need to think about an extra meal as such.
