Default suspended ceiling

I have a suspended ceiling in my kitchen, the house is 35 years old. The ceiling grid is 36 inches by 36 inches. Two fluorescent light fixtures are mounted on the unfinished ceiling above and there are four (4) 36 x 36 inch light panels/ diffuser in the grid that let the light in to the room. One of the light panels cracked and I am trying to find replacements. Due to the odd size 36x36 I cannot seem to find any, does anyone have any suggestions or sources?

Iím not looking to replace the ceiling at this moment if I can avoid it.

No pics needed here, I know what your talking about
I've seen 2ft. X 4ft. and 2ft. X 2ft. but, haven't really seen any 3ft. X 3ft. installations.
This might be a custom order or simply running in circles trying to replace a discontinued item.
call your local lighting shop and speak with them. Forget the big box stores as they only deal in the standard sizes.
I would consider buying the 2ft. X 4ft. and cutting to 1.5ft. X 3Ft. and installing a piece of grid to support the seam.
Good Luck.
