I read the recent Scott Adams post "Eating is Broken" where he suggests that an intentional community cooking, dining, cleaning, food buying would be real slick if we just applied the practice of project management and some computer automation to the problem.

As he is the creator of Dilbert, I think he is being tongue in cheek. I wouldn't think project management would apply to community kitchen. A project generally has a start and finish, whereas a kitchen is more like a production environment, where schedules, requisition of materials, quality control, etc are most important.
Very little variation in delivery (i.e. lunch is at 12), but incremental changes are necessary, but have to been implemented with caution, because a complete failure has serious ramifications (i.e. everyone goes hungry)
