7 Companies With The Best Food Perks [Infographic]

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.

Despite the sluggish economy and the nation's stubbornly high unemployment rate, many high-tech firms are struggling to fill many types of information technology jobs, such as software programmers.

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:
