"To recognize Christ, to love one another, to share life, in the breaking of the bread."
The Lord's Diner exists to combat hunger in the community. The Diner's singular mission is to serve a nutritious meal with dignity and respect to anyone who is hungry.
The Lord’s Diner serves an evening meal 365 days a year. A small paid staff, assisted by more than 6,000 volunteers representing many faiths and denominations prepare and serve a hot, nutritious meal in a spirit of compassion, respect and loving service. The Lord’s Diner is currently serving an average of 2,500 meals nightly at two dining facilities (one in downtown Wichita, and one in south Wichita) and two food trucks (one in northwest Wichita, and one in southeast Wichita), to any guest who needs a nutritious meal - 60 percent of which are families.
Responding to Christ’s call to feed the hungry The Lord’s Diner, a ministry of the Catholic Diocese of Wichita, provides a meal seven days a week, 365 days a year. The mission is achieved in a spirit of compassion and respect through cooperative efforts with people of all faiths, businesses and organizations in the community by gifts of time, talent and treasure.
Construction on our kitchen expansion began in early October with a completion date sometime this summer. We are adding several hundred square feet of kitchen space to accommodate the 2000 plus meals we prepare each day. We also will add office space and a loading area for our two mobile feeding trucks.
We currently are raising funds through a matching gift challenge for the expansion. An anonymous Wichita donor will match up to $150,000 for this project. What a blessing this is!
