I wanted to find out how to say ‘food’ in Russian, so I used ( to find that out. When typing in food, I got two alternative translations: еда and пища. Now, what is the difference between еда and пища? When should I use пища instead of еда?

Используйте "еда" - это более распространенное и употребимое слово в отношении того, что едят люди.

пища is used mostly in constructions like:
пища для ума
прием пищи
Also we got a word пищеварение which means digestion. Or literally, пище - food, варение - somewhat like brewing.
