I live in Illinois and have began speaking with the dietician about ordering food. Currently, Illinois does not cover the food. There is a bill in congress but it has been tabled yet again. It is very frustrating but I just keep emailing my representatives about it.
We do have an agency (DSCC)that covers food if you make under a certain amount.
