Unused Tube food

Options

I have 4 unopened cases of ISO source containers for tube feeding, anyone know what to do with them? Company will not take them back. Looking for a place to donate.

    I had a case of unopened

    I had a case of unopened Boost VHC that I donated to the cancer center I received treatment at. The nutritionist accepted it and seemed very happy to get it.

    Veterans Nursing Home

    Mike, 

    I drove over to the local Veterans Nursing Home and asked them if they would take it. They were happy to receive the few cases I had of Neutrin 1.5, just a suggestion. 

    My Best to You and Everyone Here

    when we were in need,

    we were getting it from the radioligist nutritionist and the oncology office.  Worth mentioning again: when dependent on feeding tube, insurance should cover it under durable equipment.  Took me FOUR years to convince our insurance company.
