Kristi, I havent had to cross that bridge yet with the special free foods yet. Where I live a grocery store is carrying some products so I have told my family and friends if they are in the gift getting mood or for birthday or whatever they can get us gift cards to that store so we can use the money that way. It is a few hours away from us but i think we will be going there to get things to stock up in the future. Also if you have a flexible spending account or insurance see if they will reimburse you for the “special medical food” or give you an allowance towards it per year. I guess alot dont offer it but we are going to try it once that time comes around!! Thanks for the comments
