== == The entire digestive system stores food in one way or another, but the main area where food "sits" for a while is the stomach. Then as the food is digested in the stomach, it goes into the "duodenum" where more of the food is digested and nutrients are sent into the blood stream and out to the body. As the food travels on through the small and large intestines eventually all the nutrients are extracted and the left over waste is what you get rid of with a bowel movement.
