What is prasadam?
Food that has been cooked with love and devotion by devotees and offered to Lord Krishna.

Prasadam literally means "mercy".

"The prasadam accepted by Krishna, offered to Krishna, is also Krishna.
So if we give prasadam, then he is getting the opportunity of associating
with Krishna." -Srila Prabhupada
