Education includes two main aspects: one from the moral point of view, for the formation of social beings with values and respect for rules and codes of living that define society. The second is from the mental and intellectual point of view for transferring knowledge and developing skills to play a useful role in society.

In the book The Menu For Life, it is shown how all the love and education that we have acquired in our lives, must be translated or incorporated into the work we develop as members of a society. The work must be done with love, giving the best we have as human beings, placing the best wishes and intentions to do well and looking for the greatest benefit for our fellow man. Moreover, the work must be based on knowledge, skills and technique that we have acquired through education we have received. The work that we do must be based on a technical or scientific support to be efficient and effective for solving a need or a problem All work we do should benefit and serve others to meet social work.
Service to others is also related to education, knowledge and skills that we have acquired throughout our lives. It is a great satisfaction when we share our knowledge with others to help solving a problem or need.
Service to others is related to the work we do every day because all the goods and services we produce in our work are for the benefit of our fellow men.
From the most trading company to the most altruistic foundation, they always seek the solution and satisfaction of the needs of their clients. In other words, there is always a relationship with others by an attitude of service or trade.
Service to others is one of the principles of The Menu For Life, as it is integrated or merged with all the love, education and work we have developed in our life.
In Service to others, we show love for our neighbor by an attitude of surrender, support and solidarity. When we give without expecting anything in return, double satisfaction is generated, for the person that gives as well as for the person who receives.
In Service to others, the education we have is evidenced by sharing knowledge and experience to help the growth and empowerment of our neighbors who may need help.
In serving others, we demonstrate that our work always has a direct relationship with the solution and meeting the needs of our neighbors, especially in times of stress or pressure.
