Sending food to your college kid

My last two babies are in college. I send one of them a gift card for gas (when her big sister remembers to take care of that transaction for me, LOL).
I send my son some groceries once a month. Last year I did it via Amazon. This year he has a car so he can go pick them up at Walmart via their grocery pick up service.
I could just send a check, and in some ways, he’d probably prefer that (last year I couldn’t, it was Amazon affiliate money). But I like being able to pick some of the food he eats (even if he probably gives some of those same foods away) and I like being able to throw in something like a box of hot cocoa mix, or a bag of mini candy bars or a pint of cherry tomatoes once in a while. It’s one small way to maintain a personal touch across the oceans that divide us. Also, he has to text me at least once or twice since I need him to tell me the best time for him to pick up the order and to tell me if he needs more cooking oil or not.;-D
I am tickled that he asked for ingredients to make Korean beef (with ground beef), and for raw broccoli.
Walmart gave me an affiliate link, so if you have never used their grocery pick up service and you want to give it a try, if you use my link, each of us gets ten dollars to apply toward an order.
