Mitzvah #264 - Feeding others while you work

When allowed to eat during the final harvesting stages, a worker may not pick up (with the intention of eating) more than one mouthful at a time.

He may also not pick up anything and give it to others to eat.

Applies to everybody, everywhere, always.

Verse: "...and into your vessels do not put any" (Devarim 23:25)
