The actual thing called food is "meaʻai." The action of eating is "ʻai".

Aloha kākou~~. Be careful those who are saying only “mea ʻai” = food. Remember that in classical Hawaii ʻai refered to starchy foods but more specifically poi. So this is still correct in the Hawaiian sense.

There's no way to report & say my answer should be marked correct. Is that always how it is in beta?
