Food

Food is material, usually of animal or plant origin, mostly produced through farming or gardening, consumed by living things to provide energy and nutrition. Liquids used for this purpose are often called drink, but the term food applies to them as well. In English, the term is sometimes used metaphorically, as in food for thought.
