The Standard Rules player aid card states the following under Main Actions/Hunt: "Food must be used this round to avoid frostbite." Looking over the rules I can find no mention of "frostbite." Did I miss something? (Easy enough to ignore, but I can imagine some interesting variations for the idea.)

i think a better term to use would've been 'freezer burn', as it's in reference to the cellular structure being destroyed in food, not people I think. once destroyed, it's not that great to eat, although it's still edible...but I think that's an attempt to explain why excess food points aren't saved for later turns.
I don't see how simply eating more food would prevent frostbite...

I thought there was a rule involved, not just an explanation of why food can't be saved for later turns. Thanks for the perspective - that makes sense.
