5 years ago, 2.6 billion people were killed in an event called the Extermination. A heinous government plan that was meant to lower the population in order to make food supplies last longer. An entire generation - from newborns to young adults - hunted down and slaughtered so the rest of Earths inhabitants could live. 

East, a survivor of the Extermination, now lives with others like him. Every day they fight for just a few more hours of life. A fate they all grew accustomed to. But when they discover a new survivor, the tide begins to turn in this losing battle.

Now, this is some interesting scenery. I didn't expect their living quarters to be a dam.  It is obvious poverty was abound, but you really express the extent of their indigence with this paragraph.

Just from the setting, however, if I am reading it right, I would say this is in a children's home, which is a nice way of describing the scene and things that happen in a place like this.
Fascinating world you've created here - and very immersive. I like the preoccupation with food and fat - really shows how desperate things are.

Contextually I would change 'pack' into 'pact' here.  No biggie though typos happen. ^_^

I really like it. I think its powerful emotive and well written. I love dystopian books so cant wait to see where this is heading

No clue. I'd probably just find some person that's not in the generation and beg to crash with them.
