Plant Food is a game mechanic in the pre-2021 version of Plants vs. Zombies 3 that gives plants powerful effects. The effects are usually a stronger display of their function or are at least related to it somewhat. Plant Food effects are all short-term, as longer-term Plant Food effects have been made into Tacobilities.

Unlike in past appearances in the tower defense games, Plant Food is no longer obtained by defeating green colored zombies, instead, a meter on the UI is slowly charged overtime, giving the player a Plant Food when the meter is filled. The player can have three units of Plant Food at a time.

Unlike in Plants vs. Zombies 2, using a Plant Food on a seed packet no longer instantly recharges it. Instead, it Supercharges the plant, allowing it to use its Plant Food ability when planted.
