Food and Dining

Goodwin’s food is delicious. Full of nutrients and energy to thrive and minerals for a healthy mind.

Few things can compete with the joy of a home cooked meal.

At Goodwin, every meal is freshly cooked onsite by qualified chefs.

We always have balanced menus and the highest food safety standards.

Whether you’re into sweet or savoury, we start with fresh, local, top-quality ingredients and produce. We take advantage of seasonal produce with 95% of our meat and vegetables coming from Murrumbateman and the surrounding areas. All our seafood is fresh from the coast.

Creating the menu

As the seasons change, so do our menus.

Our general manager of catering services and in-house dietician rotate the menu every four weeks to create scrumptious, nutritious meals.

Nothing goes on the menu without our residents’ seal of approval through our sneak peak, taste testing sessions.

We include a mix of old favourites, modern dishes and cultural cuisine.

Every mealtime has a range of options so you’re sure to find something you love.
