Do you think that Bane was sending tons of food down to the men that he planned to kill anyway? He knew they were going to die (like everyone else in Gotham) why waste resources on them? He was hunting down and killing cops that hadn't been trapped below why would he waste time and resources to feed the armed men that would try to attack and stop him the first chance they got when he in his heart knew they would be dead in a few months from the nuke anyway?
It didn't matter though. Part of giving people hope and then killing them. Resources isn't an issue. As you said, everyone on Gotham would die, including themselves.


A hero can be anyone. Even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a young boy's shoulders to let him know that the world hadn't ended.
