What is a communal meal? I've never heard of this term before


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FredCapp

Some cultures will place a big plate in front of all the diners and everyone is expected to dine from that one big plate. Other cultures will place a lot of food onto a table and extended family is expected to gather around sharing the food, though each may have hiser own plate. In both cases it is a communal meal because it is eaten in common and in community.

ref also my comment above about pot lucks.

I keep managing to misread this word as "communist". As such, this sentence thoroughly confused me.
