Yu need to Handle the DrawItem Event of all the MenuItems you need to change the Font for.

Write the Following Code on the DrawItem event of each MenuItem or in a Single method that Handles all the Menus DrawItem Event

        'get the Text To Draw
        Dim Txt As String = CType(sender, MenuItem).Text
        'Set The Font Color
        Dim MyBrush As System.Drawing.Brush = System.Drawing.Brushes.Black
        'Set The Font Name & Size
        Dim MyFont As New Font("Verdana", 10, GraphicsUnit.Pixel)
        'Draw The String
        e.Graphics.DrawString(Txt, MyFont, MyBrush, e.Bounds.X, e.Bounds.Y)
