Kansas Group's Food Trucks Serve Wichita's Hungry

By  | 

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A food truck served more than 16,000 meals to hungry Kansans last month in a south Wichita neighborhood.

The Wichita Eagle reports the Lord's Diner is a ministry of Catholic Charities. Last month, it served more than 51,000 meals at its permanent locations and through its two food trucks.

One of the trucks is stationed in a Wichita neighborhood known as Hilltop. At least 50 percent of the people who receive meals each night walk to that food truck. Some are single mothers who also take meals for their elderly neighbors.

Lord's Diner executive director Jan Haberly says summer is typically a busy time for the organization.

The Lord's Diner opened in February 2002 with a mission to help feed Wichita's hungry.
