If someone was at your house to install or provide a service, and it took all day, would you make/get them lunch?

Right now it is almost 100 degrees outside, and our AC is being replaced.  We have a sick newborn baby, so these guys started as early as possible and are working HARD all day to get it installed so we can have AC as soon as possible.

So, I ordered some pizzas and subs for everyone b/c it's too hot to cook and I appreciate their extra efforts.

My neighbor just insisted I was crazy and foolish for offering them food, saying they'd get the job done whether I was nice or not.
