You need to eat to survive. Your character simply needs food in his inventory in order to stay fed. Food in a backpack will be shared among the squad members.
Foods

Food consists of all the items in Kenshi which fill your hunger bar. A character's hunger bar is filled by 1 for every nutrition charge used. They automatically consume some food when their hunger gets below 250, unless the only types of food they have are edible ingredients. In that case they will not eat it until they get below 200.

Characters can eat any food in their own, or their squad member's inventories including that in their backpack. After eating, the hunger bar slowly fills up over time. Characters of different Races have different rates at which their hunger drains. The speed at which hunger drains is also dependent on any action that a character is doing, i.e. it will drain more slowly if a character is idle and faster if a character is working.
