SN.1.43. Annasutta ("Food")

Saṁyutta Nikāya ("The Linked Discourses")

“Both gods and humans
enjoy their food.
So what’s the name of the spirit
who doesn’t like food?”

“Those who give with faith
and a clear and confident heart,
partake of food
in this world and the next.

So you should dispel stinginess,
overcoming that stain, and give a gift.
The good deeds of sentient beings
support them in the next world.”
