Please bring some food, Ms. Yasuda.
I've always had issues with eating whenever I get sad or depressed.
When you waste food, heaven will punish you.
An eat thing (aka "a thing you eat") is food. Eat those things. Eat that food. Because it's a "thing" you know it's a noun. Interesting how this kanji can turn a verb like this into a noun, right? Look out for it because this pattern will show up with other verbs as well!
This word uses the kun'yomi readings for both kanji, but you know them both now, so you should be able to read this too!
