This could be OCD: or food addiction. More info required to answer this question. Hoarding is a compulsive urge to squirrel away food, whether or not it is actually eaten later. Food addiction, like hoarding, is about modifying feelings via a compulsive act. For more about addictions (including food) see: http://www.psychologyproductsandservices.com/addictions.html
