depends on what the food is. Protein and fat take the longest to digest. That is why protein and healthy fats are encouraged. Simple sugars like candy are metabolized quickly and you wind up hungry again in a few hours. There are also variables from person to person. When I take a medicine that is supposed to last 12 hours, it never does. It is out of my system in 6 to 8 hours while it lasts the full 12 hours or longer in other people. My PCP knows this about me but it is always a struggle when I go to another doc. 

The short answer is length of time to digest anything varies from person to person. Stay with your protein and healthy fats and you will be golden
