The Waihōanga Centre is able to provide your group with delicious wholesome food for all meals during your stay at the Lodge. 

Our professional caterers have extensive experience creating a variety of healthy and mouth-watering dishes as well as being able to cook for different dietary needs. Where possible, we aim to use organic ingredients and locally sourced seasonal produceWe provide both vegetarian and meat options as well as gluten free, dairy free and raw food meals. Menu plans are created with health & well-being in mind.

As an approximate guide, catering costs $50 per person per day for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and an additional $5 per person for morning tea.

Our caterers are, however, happy to talk with you directly about your dietary preferences. This may result in a slight change in price. 
We also believe in providing healthy nutritious food for all school groups that stay at the Centre - please enquire about our special school options.

Jenny Rahman

Jenny’s philosophy focuses on providing food that is healthy and nutritious with local, seasonal and organic products where possible while also practicing minimum waste.

“The food I make is wholesome simple and delicious. I have a good understanding for nutrition and health and can cater for different needs such as vegetarian, vegan, gluten free etc.

Through a lot of different ethnic food influences I enjoy cooking different flavours as well as creating my own fusions.

Cooking for groups makes me happy as I like it when people gather and share time and food; it is special to be able to provide this nourishing service.”
