I have sometimes found myself in a dungeon with my character hungry and with no food to feed him with. What would be my options, without having to leave the dungeon?

Kill something and eat it.

How effective that is will depend a lot on your race and what you've killed, but I remember eating a lot of corpses when I was playing.

Be careful which corpses are you going to digest though! Some might hurt you significantly... – acalypso Jan 11 '12 at 15:32
Oh yea - I had played DCSS before, so was expecting a "chop up" option for the corpses, so I assumed I couldn't eat them, but apparently I can. Thanks! – OddCore Jan 11 '12 at 15:52

You can pray and if you have enough piety, your god should make you full.
