£17 For a Pizza base – time for a more palatable solution?

It was reported today – BBCNews – that the NHS has been spending £17 on gluten free pizza bases and £2.50 for comparable loaves of bread.  Typical of a ‘big organisation out of control’.  This is our money they are wasting – not that the need is not valid, but the approach is not appropriate.  But one should not just complain unless you have a better suggestion – so here is mine.  Why not launch an NHS special food’s website from which people can order what they want.  Subsidize the prices as before but use the power of a partner like Amazon to manage the logistics for you.  For sure the £2.99 books I buy from them cannot cost the same to deliver as these NHS foodstuffs – reported to be 3-4 times the cost of the item itself.  What do you think Mr Lansley?
