I've found the best option is to feed the fish just before you leave, and then leave them alone. This works out much better than having an inexperienced person feed the fish.
I've left my tanks on there own for up to 2 weeks with out any issues. There is one exception. If you have fry, you need to feed them often, so you need someone to come in.
