Do You Share Food With Co-Workers?

I do a lot of cooking, but since I live alone, I don't always have someone to share my meals with. Thus, I bring food into work. I'll leave desserts and breakfast items in the kitchen and sometimes, I'll plate up a special appetizer — like smoked salmon crostini — for us to enjoy at our desks during the afternoon. How about you? Do you bring food into work to share with co-workers?

No. I'm greedy and I am sensitive to criticism. *lol*

I don't too often at my current job, different culture than my last job where everyone, including me, would bring in food and leave it by the coffee maker.

I bring in food to share sometimes, but usually only when it's something I need help to get rid of. Like the three pounds of dried fruit my grandmother sent me for Christmas. Who needs three pounds of dried fruit?

I definitely bring in food. We'd have like food gatherings a couple times a month, and everyone brings a dish. I"m actually gonna bring the Irish soda bread that I'm trying out from here. :) Hope it comes out ok!

Some people paint, sculpt or other creative things. I cook and bake! It makes me happy to see others enjoy what I prepare. :)

There's only 2 other people in my office so I rarely bring stuff in. I do, however, send lots of stuff with the hubby who has lots of co-workers.

forgot to mention the bag of ghirardellis was in the span of 1 hour...i guess that makes a big difference in the story?

i used to always bring stuff in for coworkers at my last job and enjoyed doing so. at the job i'm at now if i bring stuff in, 1 girl eats 95% of everything i bring in. not even an exaggeration. i brought a bag of ghirardelli chocolates and she ate all but 1 of them with no hesitation! needless to say, i stopped bringing them in, because other people they were intended for never even got to see them. :-\

if I could afford to then yes, I totally would! But with everything I cook I then freeze whatever's left over to eat on another occasion; also, I take public transport to work, so carrying enough food for everybody in my office is a task in itself

Party's always very generous about bringing in her amazing creations! When I find the time and wherewithal to pack stuff up and transport it to work (sometimes it's hard), I will. Thank goodness, since I can't always finish it all!

if i make something like cupcakes or cookies that there are just too many of to eat, then I usually bring them to work with share.

Ha! It's difficult not to share, the way they stand around me and ask a million questions about my I solve this by always bringing extra if I eat at work :)
