Carleton College Student CARE Package Request

St. Olaf College Student CARE Package Request

We are proud to offer a CARE package program to college students who attend either St. Olaf College or Carleton College.  The Co-op commits to delivering CARE packages once per month on the Third Tuesday of each month.  Expect extra special care packages to arrive during exam weeks at the college.  All CARE package pricing includes a College Cooperator Card!

We will be sure to provide a variety of delicious and nutritious (and sometimes just plain fun) treats to your college student each month.  Our products are free of artificial dyes and all the extra ‘stuff’ you don’t want your student to have.  We’ve got the brain-power foods that can help them push through the night studying and writing papers!

As a bonus, Just Food has also teamed up with our Wellness Suppliers to offer a freebie sample bag of wellness items each month.  The wellness supply will vary, but could include samples like multivitamins, fish oil, toothpaste, lotions, and soaps.   We will help you get good, quality, nutritious foods to those special college students in your life.  If you are ever in need of something for your student, please don’t hesitate to contact us.  We’re glad to help in any way we are able!

Submit the CARE package request to the Co-op and we’ll get your student set up to receive a special package each month!
