Surya Ashtottara Shata namavali (108 names) from Mahabharata in Sanskrit, Kannada, English Namaste friends, how are you doing today? Bhagavan Sri Vishnu and Lord Sri Surya Deva blessings to you and your family! When Yudhishthira was worried of how to provide food to thousands of Brahmins who had accompanied them (Pandavas) during their 'aranyavasa' (exile in the forest), at that time, Dhaumya Rishi (He is Kula Guru of Pandavas) advises Yudhishthira to pray to Bhagavan Srimann Narayana (in the form of Sri Surya Narayana). He is the one who provides sustenance (poshana / divine food etc) to the entire universe and thus Dhaumya Rishi preaches him (Yudhishthira) 108 divine names of Sri Surya Deva. Thus pleased with the prayers made by Yudhishtira, Sri Surya Deva blesses Yudhisthira with the divine 'Akshaya Patra'. This 'Akshaya Patra' gives 'akshaya aaharam' (divine and unlimited food).
