RE: Are meals an optional or required work expectation in your community?

Our meal system is similar to Swan's - we had it in place before move
in, everyone must take a turn cooking but doesn't eat every time, etc.
Our meals are even more frequent, four times a week. We have HIGH
participation in eating, with 45 - 50 people a common turnout. 

Eating together is part of the glue that builds community and connects
us. Miss Manners recently  defined "family" as people who regularly eat
dinner together - which makes FrogSong more of a family than the one *I*
grew up in !
