Bringing meals to a family is a wonderful act of kindness. It demonstrates genuine friendship. If you have recently recently received meals because of an illness, new baby, funeral, or emergency, you know how helpful they can be.
Thank-you notes show your appreciation to the person who brought the meal. While they are not necessary, they are nice. If you’re stumped on how to write a thank-you note for a meal, these sample letters might help you.
Sample Thank-You Note After Having a Baby
Dear Mrs. Gleason,
Thank-you very much for the wonderful meal after Jenily was born. The chicken spaghetti was delicious. We also loved your cheesecake. Thank-you! It was a special treat!
It was so nice to not have to hassle with fixing dinner. It was also great to visit with you briefly and let you meet her. Thank-you so much for the advice you gave me too. You are a true blessing in my life.
Sample Thank-You Notes After Illness
Thanks so much for bringing dinner last month while Caleb was in the hospital. It meant a lot to us, and we really appreciate your kindness. Thank-you! The kids especially loved the homemade ice cream sandwich cake. We will never forget your hospitality in our time of need.
Also thank-you for your friendship. I am incredibly blessed to have a friend like you.
These are just two sample thank-you notes for meals. If possible, send them via snail mail. However, an e-mail or Facebook message is okay. Thank-you notes for meals are not required, but do demonstrate your appreciation.
