What does Proverbs 23:6 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Proverbs 23:6

Eat thou not the bread of [him that hath] an evil eye
A sordid covetous man, that grudges every bit that is eaten, in opposition to a man of a good eye, or a bountiful one, that is liberal and generous, ( Proverbs 22:9 ) ; if he invites to a meal, do not accept of it, sit not down at his table to eat with him: neither desire thou his dainty meats;
or savoury food, so as to lust after it; (See Gill on Proverbs 23:3).
