The expansion will be a very small percentage of the width. For my 40” wide table, the wood moves 1/4” on each side, which could cause problems with the joinery (hence the precautions you take with a breadboard end). For a tray that’s 6” wide, it’ll be very small. I’d screw the runners on and plug the holes. The screw will allow the expansion you need. Glue will probably crack, especially since this tray will be washed, introducing moisture.
