Nothing wrong with the food, if you are referring to particular food that you have already defined in your conversation.  But obviously your question is really about the distinction between bring and take .  Both are grammatically correct, but the correct use here would depend on the location of the person you are talking to:  if that person is with you,  you would say take, but if he/she is with the other person, you would say bring.

Both these sentences are gramattically correct, but the use of bring or take depends on the type of situation. If the speaker as well as the listener are not at her place, then we will say "I'll take the food to her".  If both the speaker and the listener or either of the two is with  her, then we will say I'll bring the food to her".
