Current game stage: 1

Food/Cooking is a major survival mechanic in 7 Days to Die. Consuming food/drink grants Fullness, which restores Max Stamina. Without periodic consumption of food/drink, hunger and thirst debilitate the player, slowing movement/action speed and eventually causing death. The player can consume both food and drinks over their respective bars but they are drained fast. The amount representing 20% of both bars are depleted at a slower pace, making the player able to utilize 120% of both food and hydration bar with good efficiency.

Food Ingredients[]

While these food items can be eaten, it is usually better to use them in recipes to gain much more fullness and hydration. In addition to their low gains, some of them have also a chance of giving the player Dysentery.

Canned Food[]

Even though most types of canned food can be used in a recipe later on, consuming them is a rather essential part of early game. Some canned food isn't used in recipes: these include Can of Cat Food, Can of Miso, Can of Pears, Chicken Soup and Chicken Ration.

Late Game[]

  • Most Canned Food can be used in cooking recipes but some cannot. Save them if possible
  • Establish a garden near bases to farm many vegetables and other plants needed for cooking recipes.
  • Crops need sunlight to grow. Placing Farm Plots indoors will not allow them to grow.
  • Advanced recipes give the most amount of food too so favor them over basic foods.
