Shmeal containers and cutlery

Preparing meals for people is tough. There are a million things to think about – portion sizes, ingredient lists, timing everything just right.

So to make life easier for Shmeal cooks, we’ve decided to supply all the packaging you’ll need to share meals on Shmeal, free of charge.

In this post we’ll talk a little bit about how we provide containers and cutlery to Shmeal cooks, and take a look at some of the container options we offer.

Option one: the Ecobox

This is a Kraft Ecobox #8 32oz container with a folding lid. This box has a beautiful light brown color and a great shape for serving and eating.

It’s made from eco-friendly materials, and is perfect for hot or cold food.

The one weakness of the Ecobox is that it’s not ideal for holding hot liquids. That’s why we’ll also be offering a second option for soup…

Option two: soup container.

These containers are perfect for serving hot soups, stews, chilis, or really any Shmeal that contains hot liquid.


We offer Plantware forks and spoons, plus sauce cups, and napkins!


When cooks are approved to use the app, we provide them with some containers and cutlery to start out. When cooks need more containers, they submit a request, and we deliver more containers to their homes, free of charge.

We’re so excited to offer these containers to our cooks. With this packaging, you’ll be able to serve a wide variety of delicious foods.
