Re: Contribute to cooking common meals

     The trouble with making Common Meal cooking
voluntary is that too many people will opt out because
it involves a lot of work, and they don't initially
realize how important it is, but common meals are not
primarily about quality of food and skill of the
cooks-- they serve a major community building
function.  Many people have not cooked for large
numbers of people before moving in to cohousing and
are afraid of it so may resist this requirement.  But
once you've done it a few times it stops being scary
and is another way of bonding with your community.  A
very old and primal way I might add.  Sharing food is
a way of welcoming and bonding with people in all
human groups around the world.  It works well in
Cohousing too.
