Why might a lysosome fuse or link up with a food vacoule?

Lysosome contains some digestive enzymes that help in digestion of food stored inside vacuoles. Moreover the undigested materials are broken down by the lysososmes only. For this reason lysosomes fuse with food vacuoles inside a cell and pass the digestive enzymes to the vacuole for digestion of food.
