In the game Desert Island, the Trap Scavenge Card reads:

Expend when a Bear, Monkey, or Rat Fate event happens. The target gains 3 food instead of suffering the Fate consequences.

If multiple targets are affected by the fate, can the card be use to convert the fate to food for all of the targets?
