Why do fungi grow when they do not make food by photosynthesis?

Fungi lack chlorophyll and do not make food by photosynthesis. Instead, they break down and digest the food outside their bodies before they absorb it. There are more than 70,000 known species of fungi including mushrooms, toadstools, yeasts and moulds. Fungi break down dead animals and plant matter, releasing chemicals and nutrients back into the soil.
