In Denmark, we found that every community did this differently.  

For example, at Trudeslund, you sign up for the meal a few days ahead, and
pay your share when you arrive.  

At Saettedammen, people signed up in dining groups (Tues & Thurs.  
or Mon, Wed & Fri ,etc) and stuck with the group for a whole
year (you can join all the groups if you want to).  That way it was always
the same number of people, and so the cook just paid.  No money changed
hands because they figured it balanced out over the year.  If you miss a
meal, that's just the way it goes.  They plan on a visitor or two for each
meal, which also averages out over the year.

Each community works out what best suits their people.
