Here at FrogSong, we had a LOT of discussion about this; there were folks who really liked the idea of our meal system being more open to more people. That was before we moved in. (Other Froggies who are out there, correct me if I'm remembering anything wrong.) We eventually decided NOT to open it up. People have guests, people's non-resident significant others participate at different levels -- some come as guests, some cook sometimes. Some people (including me) didn't want to open it up because it's the one thing we all do as a community is cook and eat together, one of the "perks" of community membership. I could never fully understand the motivation behind wanting to include "outsiders" other than that those people might want to. (I should add that most of this discussion was fairly theoretical as the only person(s) interested in participating more formerly was the aforementioned non-resident partner of a community member, and one former resident.) The biggest reason we decided NOT to open it up was purely physical: our meals are very well attended and our dining room is full! We have no ROOM to add more people!
