AN.IV.59 Bhojana Sutta The Buddha teaches the fourfold fruits that can be expected to accrue both to those who give and receive almsfood:
1. long-life [aayu]; 2. good complexion [va.n.na]; 3. happiness [sukha], and; 4. strength [bala].
However these four fruits will be both in human and angelic forms for the giver rather than just in the human form for the recipient.
