Do you feed workers at your home?

Growing up, my Mom always fed workers who were doing stuff at our house--usually a big pot of chili or stew at lunch.

I don't make a full meal, but always make home-made baked goods. We recently had 3 baths remodeled, and some of the workers (especially tile) were the same crew for up to a week at a time, so I got to know them a bit and they seemed thrilled and surprised at having homemade goodies every day. I didn't even realize this was odd! (One guy asked for several recipes, which was nice.) I also offered coffee, soft drinks and cold bottled water--one guy said none of his recent customers even had water for them.

So, am I the oddball who cooks for workers? (I always told 'em if there were nuts in the brownies, and I'd never cook w/ alcohol for workers I don't know.)
