feeding the masses . . . or at least the class

Do you feed students?  Do you let them have class outside or in a lounge area instead of a classroom?  Why?  For me, I feed them sometimes . . . and not just the day that I hand out evaluations (actually, I avoid doing it that day!).  They seem touched by the gesture if it's a day they're stressed out and appreciative if they're simply hungry.

This article explores some of the reasons behind offering food and holding class in nontraditional settings:
