Food Consumption is a game mechanic whereas Food is consumed in your nation every turn.

Your population eats 1 unit of food per 1,000 citizens per day, and your soldiers eat extra food: during peace time, they consume 1 unit of food per 750 soldiers, and during war time they consume 1 unit of food per 500 soldiers per day.


Food Consumption (Peace) 
= (Population / 1000) + (Soldiers / 750)
Food Consumption (War) 
= (Population / 1000) + (Soldiers / 500)

The formulae use the displayed value for population, not the base value for population
