Food and water became an option in book two, it is also an option in book three. It's easy to miss in book 2 because the option comes up so quickly, but it is there. Book 3 has a lot of options in the game set up with a far cleaner interface.

Here is a quote from the developer on our forum:
Thomas Riegsecker: Well, as we have said, food and water requirements are being put in to further establish Eschalon as a true old-school RPG. Traditionally, this has been used to put limits on camping abuse- players who take a couple hits then retreat to camp, repeating over and over. Obviously, this strategy becomes much more difficult if your character is consuming resources. But rather than impose new rules on players who enjoyed Book I as it was, we have decided to make food and water an optional gameplay element which you can disable if you want.
