On Friday evening I was simultaneously thinking about making food labels for meal train dishes I was going to deliver Saturday, and also what to post on my blog this weekend. Finally, it occurred to me that I could combine the two! I signed up to bring a meal to a friend who needed it, and wanted to be able to easily label everything with contents and how to reheat. I came up with simple editable labels I could use now and in the future. I attached them to the containers with washi tape. The editable and printable labels may be downloaded free using the form at the bottom of this post.
STEP 1 Download and Print Your Labels
Download the 8.5 x 11 inch PDF at the bottom of this page and save it to your hard drive. Then open it in Adobe Acrobat Reader. Even though the PDF will open in your web browser and other applications, it is important that you use Adobe Reader on a computer to edit it, or it will not work properly. It is a free download from Adobe if you do not already have it.
To add text, click in the blue highlighted text fields and type the information for each label. Then save and print as many as you like.
For paper, use a bright white, kraft or pastel cardstock. If you do not have a printer, you can also just have them printed at an office store local to you. Once you are ready, print as many sheets as you need.
STEP 2 Cut Out Your Labels
Use your paper cutter to cut out the meal train labels along the crop lines. You may use scissors if you don’t have a paper cutter, but it is easier to get them straight with the cutter. Punch a hole for the string or ribbon if you wish to tie them on, or just tape them to your dishes.
