Food can be used to recover when you have 81+ health so that you don't waste a Medkit. It is also extremely useful for getting your health out of critical level (25 or less) so that you can survive a shot or two before you find a Medkit or One Up. Most maps have Food in large clusters, so don't accidentally pick up more than you need.
