    correct sentence

    Do not get angry if you discover your food (is) missing. Let this food can nourish her if she needs it.

    Is 'is' necessary? Shouldn't it be 'this can of food'?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi again,
    No, the "is" is not necessary and yes, it should be "can of food"...I can't imagine a "food can" would be very nourishing
