Senior Meals

Gordon Food Service is pleased to provide sample menus for Senior Meals, which feature five weeks of hot lunches for a regular diet type. They were written to meet the nutrient goals for one-third of the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA). This menu is available in 7-day and 5-day (weekday) formats. You can also find new blank 5- and 7-day monthly templates at the bottom of this page. These Microsoft Word templates are already formatted for quick text entry; just click on the text and begin typing.
