Getting Food in Frostpunk
Food is one of the most important resources you need to manage in Frostpunk. With it, you can raise your city’s Hope meter and keep your people happy. Without it, your people will start starving and dying, and this could raise the Discontent meter instead. Simply put, you’ll want to make sure you’ve got a good source of food coming in at all times.
At the start of Frostpunk, you should have some raw food units and rations to sustain you for a while, at least until you get the generator up and running. After that, feeding your people should be your main priority. The game will prompt you with tutorials on how to keep a steady source, but just in case you need some more guidance, we’re here to help. Go to your construction menu and click on the Food tab. From here, you can construct a few different kinds of buildings. The hunter hut allows you to assign workers to serve as the city hunters, and they can bring back raw food units.
That should be the first thing you build. After that, you can build a cook house (remember to assign workers to these as well), and you’ll be able to convert the raw grub into much more efficient units to feed your people with. A hot house is used to produce raw food units. Unlike the hunter hut, a hot house is active during the day at regular work hours.
