Maggie's Story - from Senior Australian of the Year to the Maggie Beer Foundation
"In 2010 I was named Senior Australian of the Year and as one of my many engagements I was asked to speak to 1000 CEOs of aged care.
It was then that I realised just how many passionate people there are involved in this industry, all of them trying to do what they can with limited resources to bring every part of the puzzle together to impact change in aged care, but it is a very complex tapestry to manage.
It was my hope to pull all of the various specialist aspects of science, research, nutrition and management under the one umbrella to support this ever growing industry in providing wholesome, flavoursome food to everyone, regardless of age or dietary requirements.
The vision of the Maggie Beer Foundation is to educate and facilitate the food we all deserve, and I truly believe everyone deserves to enjoy good food." Maggie.
