So we decided to bring in breakfast this morning for the HR team … which consists of four people … the food that was brought in was at least a dozen bagels, a box of joe, 10 muffins and a big bowl of fruit (that would be courtesy of me – yay for attempting to be healthy*). Word spread like wildfire through the office and within 15 minutes the food was gone, finance, IT, the admins, the executives – everyone wanted food. They were so excited and so appreciative and it really just made me think – what is it about food that helps people come together? The kitchen is always where everyone wants to be at family parties. Whenever I am going to meet up with a friend I haven’t seen in a while it’s – “want to grab dinner?” … I’m not complaining, just wondering – what is it about food that brings people together?
*I did have half a bagel too, but mostly fruit!!
