Make sure that they have space available in their inventories to pick up food. Toggle off "Wear Equipment" to allow them to keep their weapons when not in combat.

My colonists won't fight properly[]

Right click on the ground near their target. You can also right click on the target, but that is not recommended for larger fights as they will go home after their target dies.
