What does Mark 6:36 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Mark 6:36

Send them away
Leave off preaching, dismiss the assembly; see ( Matthew 14:15 ) ;

that they may go into the country round about;
or "into the fields"; that is, to the odd houses; which were here and there in the fields; (See Gill on Mark 5:14);

and into the villages;
the little country towns that were near at hand:

and buy themselves bread, for they have nothing to eat;
they brought no provisions with them, and there were none to be had in that desert place; and it was high time they had some refreshment; for the usual time of dining was past, the first evening was come, the day was on the decline, and was far spent.
