I haven't looked at the book in awhile, but maybe I can look at some of the other items that are guarded and see if there's a way to interchange the steps if the guarded item is stolen food.
I don't have the book in front of me, but I don't see why a highly reinforced drop or leave it command wouldn't work.

Has this video been posted?
Teaching Your Dog to "Drop" - YouTube

I can see this transfering well to your particular situation.
