Food can be obtained by foraging, trapping, farming or hunting Animals and Monsters. Food refills Hunger and some Health, depending on the quality of the food eaten. Almost all raw food can be Cooked on a Campfire to increase the amount of Health/Hunger they restore.

Notably, Meats can be used as bait, for the recruitment of Pigs, as offering to the Pig King, and are a requirement to construct the Meat Effigy. Some Food, such as Monster Meat or Durian can damage health instead of restoring it.

Food Spoilage

Almost all Food slowly perishes and turns eventually into Rot. When Food perishes below 50%, it becomes stale. When Food further perishes below 20%, it becomes spoiled.

Stage Effect
Green (Fresh) Restores the full amount of Hunger Meter.png, HealthMeter.png and Sanity Meter.png for a given food
Yellow (Stale) Restores 2/3 of Hunger Meter.png, 1/3 of HealthMeter.png for a given food and doesn't restore any Sanity Meter.png
Red (Spoiled) Restores 1/2 of Hunger Meter.png for a given food, doesn't restore any HealthMeter.png and decreases Sanity Meter.png by 10
  • Any kind of cooked meat lasts longer than any raw meat, but any kind of raw vegetable lasts longer than any cooked vegetable.
  • Food dropped on the ground will perish at a rate of 150%, while keeping it in the Ice Box will reduce the rate to 50%. At Winter the food perish rate is additionally reduced by 25%.
  • The stale and spoiled effects do not apply when eaten by WX-78.
  • The effects of eating stale or spoiled food are worse when playing as Wickerbottom. (how much exactly?)
  • Stacked Food items share the same level of spoiling. Combining items with different spoil levels into a single stack averages the spoiled amount between them. This can be used to "save" a nearly-rotten food item, by stacking it with a fresh item, then ctrl+clicking to separate it from the rest of the stack again.
  • Cooking Food on fire or in Crock Pot halves the spoiled amount of the Food.
  • Tallbird Eggs, Mandrakes (raw and cooked), and Deerclops Eyeball are the only Food items which don't spoil.
