Would you say "lots of food" should be acceptable? It may not be formally correct, but it's often said.

I think it is acceptable, and I don't think it is formally incorrect as you suggest either.

That was my first choice too. Food is a mass noun in English.

"Lots of food" should be accepted, yes. Like "lots of grain".
