How would i power multiple guitar food pedals without batteries?
i know you can buy power supply's for the foot pedals, but i dont want to buy so many power supply's for each of the pedals. Is there just one power supply that can power 2 or more pedals?

There are several products out there that do just what you want:
Voodoo Labs makes my favorite multiple output pedal board power supply. I just installed one of the newest ones on a pedal board last weekend:
Each power output is isolated, you can get 18V is needed (if you have Line 6 pedals, you'll need it), and a couple of outputs can mimic a partially discharged battery (that some guys like with certain effects).
Visual Sound sells something they call the 1Spot, which is a small switching power supply and the adapter cables that you'll need:
I'm not a fan of using devices like this on a pedal board. Switching supplies are by design sources of noise. If you're not using a lot of high-gain pedals on your board, it wil probably work for you.

Yes. there's pedalboards and boxes which provide power for multiple pedals.
