Why hang food in bags (Movie: 1917)

In one bit of the movie 1917, the protagonists are making their way through an abandoned front line of the Germans. Part of the area includes an underground bunkhouse with beds (stripped of all but frames, springs, and a few overlooked personal momentos). But there also canvas food bags hanging from the ceiling; what were they for? The rats were nosing at them but not wholesale eating at them: one bit of dialogue indicates it might be food. Would that have been a thing, to hang up your ration?
