"No food available"

After several hours at A&E my elderly mum needed food and a hot drink.
It was difficult walking to the restaurant as I suffer with hip problem.
I arrived at approximately 7 45 pm to find it closed. At least there was the option (or so I thought) of vending machine food.
I was wrong.
Both the food and hot beverage machines were out of order.
I was and still am, absolutely incredulous and horrified at such a disgusting state of affairs in any hospital, let alone a huge A&E hospital as the Northern General.
Surely, just basic food and hot drink should be available at any time.
Why is a basic necessity such a problem?
