How to help my friend? (Possibly triggering)

So today in science class I was sitting with my good friend, and usually we text back and forth during class. Today she seemed a little sad, so I asked what was up, and she texted me that her eating disorder was coming back.
I know that she has struggled with bulimia in the past, and she had told me she was past it, and from then on she seemed fine. Now I feel terrible that I hadn't picked up on it sooner. I asked what I could do to help and she said she was ok. I'm not buying it.
But how can I help her? I don't want the whole world to find out about it, but I don't want her to continue living like this. I would offer her food, but I don't know whether that would help or hurt the problem. What should I do?
