Allies, including the Player, consume 3 Food each day, so keeping your stocks up is always a concern. Water is considered part of the food supply. In the beginning you might be able to scavenge a lot of preserved food, but don't forget about long term solutions like building a garden. Also, you have the ability to ration the provisions, but less food and water will lower morale.

Fresh/Perishable Food[edit | edit source]
Fresh Food expires after several days without a working fridge. The "Expires" counts the number of days that the item lasts without a fridge, the "Fridge" is how long it will last with one.

A small bag of white rice.
A staple of Native Americans, and later explorers, it’s a concentrated block of fat, meat, and berries. High-energy food that keeps for long periods of time – enough to get used to the taste.
