Satisfy my hunger.

The word satisfy is commonly used here, including this definition from TheFreeDictionary:

to put an end to (a desire, want, need, etc.) by sufficient or ample provision: to satisfy one's hunger.

fulfill my caloric content

More technically accurate and not completely unrealistic to hear said in a sentence.

Sustenance: something (such as food) that keeps someone or something alive.

"The food was so bad that I couldn't eat even for sustenance."

One could also use survive/survival.

"The food was so bad that I couldn't eat even just to survive."

sate TFD

  1. To satisfy (an appetite) fully.

As in:

The food was so bad that I couldn't eat even to just sate my appetite.
