"They like their employees hungry.">  Ha, that remind me of a video I saw for a business that still wants start-up cred after being in business for a decade. It spends a great deal of time on the food offerings: fruit, cupcakes, and -- I quote -- "four types of beef jerky." One of the employees happily declares, "you won't go hungry here." The flip side, of course, is that they likely feed you to keep you working through your lunch break and even into your dinner time. At least that was my take. I don't want to choose a work place for its food -- unles it is in the culinary business.

@mpouraryan in that sense, yes, though I suppose this company knows that people don't concentrate very well when they are starved. I find it rather infantalizing, though, to have the company provide your meals and snacks. I'm of the brown bag school of thought, for indepedence and economy.

Ever so important--no question--especially as I see the need ever more with one of my Community Service Engagements at my local Catholic Parish food Pantry Ministry--Some 300,000 Est. People go hungry every month in Orange County.     The need for companies to makes sure fundamentals are taken care of should be part of the culture and be ever so part of the transformation we all hope for.
