Food is one of the most important items in Booga Booga, used primarily to combat hunger, also referred to as starvation by some players in the game. In combat, it is used to regain health. When food is consumed, health increases. Different foods in the game provide more or less health. Foods vary in weight and size. The best food for combat is the blood fruit.
- Consuming raw food items, such as: meat, poultry, and seafood will result in the player losing a portion of their health. These raw food items should be cooked with a Campfire and then consumed.
- Some food items require preparing or crafting prior to cooking. Example of this is: bread - to obtain this you must mash barley into grain mush, cook the grain mush, and 'ta-da' you have bread.
- If your hunger bar is very low, a message will come up in red saying 'You are starving!'
- If your hunger bar is fully depleted, you will slowly lose health and die unless you refill your hunger bar.
- The Survivalist Mojo perk reduces hunger depletion speed by 50% and increases health regenerated.

- Cactus Bits and Fried Cactus give the same amount of food and HP regen, so cooking Cactus has no use.
- Soybeen was entertaining the idea of food only being consumed while the player is not in combat, preventing constant healing from food items like Bloodfruit. This was an idea and has not come to fruition.
- The best foods are probably Cooked Meat, Bluefruit, Bloodfruit, and Cooked Fish.
