Can a vow-maker eat from the food he offered in fulfillment of his vow?

Question 24: If a person offers food for the poor in fulfillment of his vow, is it permissible for him to eat from that food?

Answer:  The basic ruling is that if the thing that is offered in fulfillment of a vow is permissible, it will be a must to spend it on the channels specified by the person who made the vow. If he did not specify a channel, it should be considered as Sadaqah (voluntary charity) that is to be spent on the poor and more here.
