people's tastes might have been simpler back then, they may have been able to go without food for longer periods but hunger is hunger. they would have eaten whatever they managed to come home with but they were short most days, they would have resented the other groups that were better off. if they were losing out to the same group all the time, there would have been bitter resentment.
I'd say the ones chasing it would get the spoils
How would they know the other group was doing so successful though? Unless you're trying to say that these different groups were all living on top of each other and they all had to share one dinner table between the different groups?
