Plants and algae do not eat, but use energy from light, together with carbon dioxide and water to make glucose (food) through photosynthesis. They either use the glucose as an energy source, to build new tissue, or store it for later use. Plants have specially-adapted organs that allow them to obtain resources needed for photosynthesis.
