Search for food (4)


I believe the answer is:


I believe this clue is a double definition.

'search' is the first definition.
(grubbing is a kind of searching)

'food?' is the second definition.
(grub is a kind of food)

'for' is the link.

(Other definitions for grub that I've seen before include "Larva; dig shallowly" , "Food (informal)" , "Larva; food (sl.)" , "Nosh - larva" , "Caterpillar - food" .)

I've seen this clue in The Irish Independent and The Times.
