When I am at a Bris I have noticed that many people take food for others who are not there. What is the source for taking food from a Bris?

That one is talking about garlic and sugar by a Pidyon Haben, this one is talking about regular food items from a Bris. –  Gershon Gold Jul 15 '12 at 19:43
    
I taught it's to give others an opportunity to attend seudas mitzvah –  jutky Jul 15 '12 at 20:07
    
Then why don't people take home food from a Siyum or a Chasuna, etc? –  Gershon Gold Jul 15 '12 at 20:19
