Maggie Beer is not just an Australian food icon; she’s an essential ingredient in any discussion about food and flavor. In April 2014, Maggie established her own Foundation, the Maggie Beer Foundation, to create an appetite for life, regardless of age or health restrictions. The wellbeing and nutritional welfare of those in ages care homes has been an ongoing concern of Maggie’s for a long time and she is so happy to have finally found the time and people to support her passion.
In fellowship with her Board of industry leaders, professors and health advisors, Maggie has made it her personal mission to link the latest research of nutrition’s impact on brain health and general wellbeing, with her innate knowledge of what good food can do for everyone’s state of mind; a truly nourishing mix, so much greater than the sum of its parts. Maggie’s hope to ‘create an appetite for life’ leads her to work on many levels, with the hope of encouraging everyone (young, old and in between!) to enjoy quality, seasonal cooking every day.
