Picnics and pack-outs can be arranged for college sponsored events that will be held during dining hall hours.

Pack-Out Procedures

Dining Services understands that Carleton College students are on the go, which means flexibility and convenience are sometimes equal in importance to the food itself.  In an effort to meet these needs, a pack-out program has been designed for board students who will not be able to eat at the dining halls due to a college sponsored event. 

The following policies have been established for pack-out orders:

  • All pack-out requests must be emailed to with two required attachments a minimum of 72 hours in advance. See Related Documents box to the right for Cover Sheet and Pack-Out Sign Up Form.
  • Orders received less than 72 hours in advance will be assessed a $25.00 fee that will be charged to the department budget number if the order is approved; however, orders made less than 72 hours may be denied based on current availability.  
  • Each group will need to provide their own coolers, cooking and serving utensils, and charcoal.
  • Picnic site locations may be reserved through Campus Scheduling at x4443.
