Andrew Burgess pointed out that cooking is a social lubricant. My experience makes me tend to agree with that. I wonder how many built cohousing groups have very few meals together and how they function as social environments? I have some limited data, from my own work, which suggests that few meals tends to define communities with little social interaction or support. But my experience is based on examples from only 4 cohousing groups that show this pattern. Anybody have other experiences? For arbitrary measure, lets say 4 meals a month is low. Are there any communities out there on the list which are on the low side who feel their social intimacy level is high? Or how about the opposite, groups with many meals, 12 or more a month, which have a low social intimacy? Or to put it another way, is there a relationship between eating together and social cohesion as a community?
