That while thirst demands immediate attention, hunger can wait. If a person gets really thirsty, they will stop whatever they are doing to take a drink. And will drink any liquid available (water, booze, urine, blood, swamp slime, whatever). But people can ignore hunger and have to be on the verge of total starvation before they'll eat things like rotted meat, live insects, or (in a nod to Stephen King) themselves.
