I have a trial that starts in two weeks. Will I be able to eat and drink in the courtroom?
No. You will be able to have water when you testify on the witness stand, but otherwise eating and drinking are not permitted in the courtroom when court is in session. There is usually a morning, lunch and afternoon break, so it is highly unlikely that you will go more than 2 hours without the opportunity to eat, get a drink, or use the restroom.
