Creating an Appetite for Life
Maggie Beer Foundation welcomes support to improve aged care food experiences
Education & Programs
The vision of the Maggie Beer Foundation is to ensure that all residents in aged care have access to fresh, wholesome, seasonal food, abundant with flavour. To achieve this, we need to engage with and educate cooks and chefs in the aged care sector.
We know there are some amazing examples of great food in aged care, but there are so many others where there is a misconception that aged care food budgets prevent flavoursome, seasonal food being prepared. The MBF education programs have been designed to challenge this thinking and to share best practice.

Tip: Freeze any browning or overripe bananas- they are perfect in smoothies. Substitute the frozen banana for frozen berries Season Any Cost $0.80 per serve (based on retail prices) Ability Easy Can Best fresh Equipment Blender
