Non-refridgerated Food for Senior

Thanks, that's what I was looking for.

Non-refridgerated Food for Senior

I guess I should have added more info. She has Alzheimer's & is in an Assisted Living Facility which provides Lunch & Dinner. When she doesn't "like" what is there for Lunch or doesn't want to go for lunch (she gets lost/forgets to go) then she doesn't eat anything. While there are staff who check & remind, some people get lost in the shuffle. Yesterday she had such low blood sugar, it became scary. She doesn't want her family 'hovering' so I thought that if food was just there, there might be less of the low blood sugar, which adds to the dementia symptoms.

I am trying to find a way to make sure my 80 year old Mother gets a decent lunch. I need to know what can be set up in advance (plate of food) that can sit on her table for her to eat for as long as 2-3 days. No cooking, no microwave, no hard to chew items. She is diabetic (still needs some sugar) and can not chew well.
I know that honey/peanut butter is fine & tons of condiments, but would like to get lunches ready ahead of time & leave them for her to eat when she gets hungry.
