The Lord’s Diner, a not-for-profit soup kitchen operated by the community, for the community, and sponsored by the Catholic Diocese of Wichita, provides an evening meal seven days a week, 365 days a year, including holidays. Responding to Christ’s call to feed the hungry, it seeks to achieve this goal in a spirit of compassion, respect, and loving service through cooperative efforts with churches, individuals, and organizations.
Located at the corner of Broadway and Central in downtown Wichita, The Lord’s Diner serves dinner from 5:30pm to 7:30pm large volunteer groups from area churches and organizations are the core of the volunteer base. These groups are scheduled to serve on a regular basis once a month. The Lord’s Diner utilizes approximately 50 volunteers per day to prepare and serve the nightly meal. Blessed Sacrament Parish is scheduled to serve at The Lord’s Diner on the first Sunday of each month.
