Food is necessary to keep Duplicants healthy. Duplicants cook very basic food on the Microbe Musher or later - once Meal Preparation research has been performed - at the Electric Grill. The food is dropped on the floor if no refrigerator or ration box is available. If the food is not stored in cold enough temperatures (provided by the environment or a refrigerator etc) or in sterile gas (pure carbon dioxide for example) it will turn over time into a rot pile.

Duplicants will eat food when they are hungry by picking it up from the floor or refrigerator and eat it while standing or while sitting at a mess table. Each Duplicant needs 1000 kcal per cycle.

If the food is contaminated with germs they can become infected with food poisoning.

The resources for food can be found by killing critters like a Hatch, gathering items like Slime or plant parts or farming the plants.
