Not sure it's about food issues:
Although Swift seeks throughout the poem to cheer his ailing friend by recalling her past acts of generosity and compassion, he also attempts to assuage his own pain at the possibility that she is dying. Unlike the earlier “Stella’s Birthday” poems of 1719 and 1721, which are informed by a mood of playful optimism and satirical whimsy, the final 1727 poem contains an air of unrelieved morbidity expressed in a series of pointed questions implying that the person most in need of cheering is not Stella but Swift. In reminding Stella of the lasting value of her past acts, he asks,
Does not the body thrive and grow By food of twenty years ago? And, had it not been still supplied, It must a thousand times have died. Then, who with reason can maintain that no effects of food remain?

Swift suggests that true virtue has permanence, nourishing both the virtuous individual and the lives of those who have been touched. These lines reflect the poet’s pained awareness not only that he is losing his dearest friend but also that the world is losing an exemplary human being, and it is this sobering realization that haunts the moving central sections of the poem.
