"Bread and water" refers to the most basic of meals. It is a common policy to give prisoners only what is necessary to survive and nothing more.

In 2376, Kathryn Janeway ordered bread and water only for the prisoner Dala, but Neelix brought her some extra things anyway. This included some tea, which she used to burn him and steal his weapon so that she could escape. (VOY: "Live Fast and Prosper")
