Food swap labels

Here are pictures of labels seen at the Oly Food Swap:

There are a variety of sites that let you download and print their labels for free. You could attach these to your jars with string, yarn or ribbon, or you could print them onto stickers and affix.

Trades are one to one. Be sure to partition items into a serving for one to one trades (i.e. if you made a cheesecake or pie, cut it into serving slices before packaging) – better yet make mini pies or pies or cakes in jam jars. (if you have a larger container of canned item it does not trade for 2-3 of other items, it goes 1 to 1 so make sure to consider that in packaging. If you bring a quart size jar of a canned good, you will be trading for what could be a 1/2 C size of jam, so please consider that when packaging your items. Sometimes feelings can be hurt if people don’t want to trade their large size items for a smaller size of something.
