A more precise context is required to give you a good answer. By itself, "Por algo de comer?" literally means "In exchange for some food?"

"algo de comer" or "algo para comer" (depending on region) are both accepted ways of saying "something to eat".

"¿Quisiera(s) algo de/para comer?" - Would you like something to eat?

  • why is that? do some regions prefer using the preposition "de" more than "para"? - mcoger Jan 22, 2011 flag
  • Prepositions evolve with the spoken language. Some regions adopt some prepositions more than others and it becomes second nature for all speakers alike - gone Jan 22, 2011 flag
