Many or most cohos allow for occasional or variable participation in meals 
programs — with the general understanding that the more often you eat, the more 
often you cook.  Some individuals are quite active in community life, but just 
don’t like the common meals.  Some cohos report drifting away from the huge 
(noisy and chaotic?) 40-person dinners, to more intimate sub-group meal events 
of around a dozen people.  I think I’d be slow to make communal dining any more 
of a mandatory pre-requisite than communal bathing.
