Who among us doesn't enjoy a good meal -- and it's even better if it's free or at least doesn't cost a lot.
Workers on Wall Street have long enjoyed free food as a perk that goes with the job. The rationale behind the benefit is really rather simple: Instead of being out on the streets of Manhattan, fishing up something to eat, busy stock and bond traders are able to stay behind their desks making deals -- and money.
Ultimately, a well-fed employee is likely a happier, more productive employee. And that may be why many Silicon Valley companies have started offering their workers free meals as a perk, too, in addition to many other office amenities.
Whether it's catered breakfasts, lunches or even dinners, savvy firms such as Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and others have included meals as a way to attract and keep the best and brightest employees on board. To paraphrase a well-worn saying: The way to employees' hearts is through their stomachs.
To get a taste of how some of Silicon Valley's best-known high-tech companies tantalize their workers with eatable perks, check out out this roundup, compiled by ResumeBear:
