Starfish digestion is carried out in two separate stomach, the cardiac stomach and the pyloric stomach. The cardiac stomach, which is a sack-like stomach located at the center of the body, may be  pushed out of the organism's body, and used to engulf and digest food.

please mark my answer as the best,if it helped u:)
The mouth of the starfish is found on the under side of the starfish creature. Food enters the mouth and into the first stomach. Then it is passed onto the secondary stomach and then into the many digestive glands that are located within each of the arms of the starfish. These digestive glands secrete enzymes and absorb the much needed nutrients from food. A small intestine runs from the secondary stomach to the external port (where the starfish disposes waste) which is located in the central upper part of the body.
