This program looks at the challenges that Governor Phillip faced trying to feed the new settlers. The diet of the first white settlers was not very healthy. They tried a few local foods, but most people wanted their familiar foods. When their crops failed, the new colonists were soon put on rations. Many people became ill. The future of the colony looked quite bleak.
