"Each product contains all-natural ingredients and requires no refrigeration. Students can enjoy foods from high-quality big and specialty brands they recognize and trust, and parents can feel good about their kids eating nutritious, better-for-you foods when they snack."

Food items selected for inclusion in GoPicnic Care Packages are selected because they're really tasty, and meet GoPicnic's rigorous standards for `delicious'. Better yet, all products in GoPicnic meals and Care Packages contain no trans fats, high fructose corn syrup or added MSG, and no artificial colors or flavors.

"For parents and extended families it's difficult when a child goes away to college. For students, they may be lonely and homesick. The GoPicnic college care packages are a great way to show children you're thinking about them while being supportive," said Stamberger.

About GoPicnicr:
GoPicnicr was founded by Julia Stamberger in 2006 to create nutritious, delicious ready-to-eat meals that have the added convenience of being shelf-stable, and require no refrigeration or preparation. GoPicnic's initial clients were major U.S. airlines wrestling with costly waste and customer service issues from their buy-on-board fresh food service programs. Recognizing the many benefits pre-packaged "picnic" meal programs brought to a wide array of other industries, GoPicnic expanded its offerings to reach consumers, retail outlets, hotels and airports. GoPicnic also offers a full-service fundraising program for schools and other non-profit organizations.
