I've a strong intention to perform itikafh, unfortunately I reside away from Masjid and nobody is there to bring food. So can I perform itikafh in my home. As I don't have any other alternative.

Unfortunately, E'tikaf of a man can only be performed in a regular Masjid. It can not be performed at home or any other place.
If you sit in E'tikaf and there is no one to bring food for you then it is permissible for you to leave the Masjid to get food for yourself but when you leave the Masjid you should return as soon as possible and do not waste any time in transit.
And Allah knows best.
