Ar Sharingwood by design we have limited sign up meal preparation potential to only 4 nights per week, and Saturday breakfast. There is a seasonal cycle in our community meals. In the summer it is a rare week where all the slots are signed up for,meaning we only have 1 or 2 meals a week. In the fall and winter it is more common to have all the meal slots signed up, but still, out of 20 potential meals per month we probably only average 16-18 per month. Since having a meal is determined by people signing up to cook and clean, it balances our energy well. If nobody signs up to cook and clean there is no meal. There are some folks who attend every meal, there are some folks who rarely or never attend meals. Some folks pick up food and take it home. It's an option, not a requirement. Community dinner is loud and boisterous, the food quality, while generally pretty high, does not meet some peoples needs, and so attendence fluctuates greatly. Good cooks draw more people. We are a community dominated by families with kids. I doubt we would ever want to do more meals than we do. Family time can be hard enough to come by sometimes as it is.
