Food for Thought is the first single released by British reggae band UB40. It reached number four in the UK Singles Chart in early 1980 and number one in New Zealand in September 1980. The original single version is slightly shorter compared to the Signing Off album version, with the album version including a break using a synthesiser reverb an early example of their mixing techniques that can be found on their album Present Arms in Dub.

Producer Bob Lamb once said that this song's original title had been The Christmas Song, but then some of the crew suggested that Food for Thought would be a better one.
