For that short of a time they will be fine. A nice just before you leave and then start feeding again when you return, they will just be extra hungry.

Feeders and cubes and stuff can be more hassle than they are worth and potential problems may arise from food sticking due to humidity, malfunctions, cubes dissolving too fast, etc.

I go that long between feedings on a regular basis. Dont worry your fish will do fine. I think you would be amazed as to how much food is acutally in the tank.
