Hey, I believe that vacuoles store food and waste. Some vacuoles also store extra water

Thank you VERY MUCH! =)
Have a great day! :D

EDIT: HAHA! I just noticed there is a dictionary value in this website for Vacuole:
(Science: cell biology) membrane bounded vesicle of eukaryotic cells. secretory, endocytotic and phagocytic vesicles can be termed vacuoles. botanists tend to confine the term to the large vesicles found in plant cells that provide both storage and space filling functions. A tiny cavity filled with fluid in the cytoplasm of a cell.A membrane bound component of a cell found in the cytoplasm. The vacuole contains important elements and molecules required by the organism such as food, air and water and cell sap in plants.

I put bold on what I was looking for.
