Ways to Help




The Lord’s Diner is an office of the Catholic Diocese of Wichita dedicated to improving the health of the community by offering anyone in need a hot meal, no questions asked. Our circle of care for guests is strengthened by another circle – our caring and compassionate donors. Financial support through gifts of time, talent and treasure provides 100% of the annual operating budget for The Lord’s Diner. Here are the ways in which you can help.

  • Operating Gifts – Operating Gifts are given to The Lord’s Diner for no reason other than someone has heard and/or observed the work that we do to help to the hungry in our community.

  • Matching Gifts – Consider establishing an employee matching gift program at your business. Your company could match the dollar amount your employees donate to The Lord’s Diner.

  • Employee Payroll Deduction – Employee payroll deduction is a convenient way for your employees to make direct gifts to The Lord’s Diner.

  • Memorial Gifts – Memorial gifts are donated in memory of family and friends. Families often specify “memorials to The Lord’s Diner” in lieu of flowers. Memorial Gifts are acknowledged with a card to the family member(s) who designated The Lord’s Diner for the memorial.

  • Automatic Withdrawal – You may choose to give electronically in a direct payment program whereby your contribution is debited automatically from your checking or savings account.
