You are a

Fungus

I am something that you eat

Mushrooms can be a delicious fungus.

But I am also something which is called disease

One can have a fungal infection, like Thrush in the mouth, or Athlete's Foot* on the feet.

I am something that is grown in the ground but I am not veggie

Fungus usually grows on or in the ground, though it can grow in a lot of places

But I am also something that can grow mainly on your feet.

See above, re: Athlete's Foot.

* I am not linking to this one, because there's a gross-ass picture there

Even though the question is answered. But I found out another answer that I'd like to share. It is

Corn


I am something that you eat

Yup.

But I am also something which is called disease

Yes, there really is a disease called corn.

I am something that is grown in the ground but I am not veggie

Speaking from a botanical point of view, corn is classified as a grain. And yeah they are grown on the ground.

But I am also something that can grow mainly on your feet.

As you can see from the linked pictures
