: What is the origin of this phrase. "food pounding" usually describes when a pastor is given food from the congregation.

In the movie "Cross Creek," about writer Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, one of the characters had a "pound party." Each guest had to bring a pound of food. Maybe there's a connection.
