Food is the most important resource in Rebuild. You start every game with 25 units of food, and every survivor in your group will consume 1 unit of it per game day. If you run out of food, your survivors have a chance to start starving to death. This is more likely to happen if you have many hungry survivors in your group.
There are a variety of ways to collect food to prevent such a tragedy from occurring...
- Scavenging from buildings marked by an apple icon on the overlay.
- Hunting in Field squares.
- Fishing in Park squares.
- Trading for food with other factions, such as Gustav.
