Achimelech offered Dovid לחם הפנים from the שולחן that was in the Mishkan.

Below are some links to pictures.

What the לחם הפנים actually looked like.

Below is a video in Hebrew explaining the baking of the לחם הפנים.

Achimelech told Dovid there was a sword wrapped in a garment behind the ephod.

The ephod looked like an apron. Below is a link to a picture of the ephod worn by the כהן גדול. An ephod was considered a prestigious garment. For example, Shmuel's mother made him an ephod and in Shmuel II Dovid is wearing an ephod.
