> What do any of you do when community members have special food needs? ...> And means also that I could not share cooking or clean up > duties because of the potential contamination We have had individuals in our community who are unable to cook because of specific disabilities (e.g. stroke). Those people are absolved from the requirement to take a turn cooking. We have one person in our community who has a very restricted diet due to a specific health issue. He frequently brings his own food to community dinners so that he still has the group interaction. When he cooks a common meal, he cooks food that he can eat. However, he is not so sensitive that he cannot be in a kitchen that handles certain foods. It seems unlikely that a community would be willing to have a completely gluten-free kitchen; I would think you could be given dispensation from cooking/cleanup duties if doing so would make you sick! Would you be able to at least EAT without illness in the dining room if you brought your own food? ------------------------------ Eris Weaver, Facilitator & Group Process Consultant Member, FrogSong (Cotati, CA) Co-President, Coho/US eris [at] erisweaver.info 707-338-8589 http://www.erisweaver.info fa cil' i tāt: to make easier
