Three new restaurants
All the food trucks in one spot
Wichita’s three food trucks are coming together Sunday to help raise money for victims of the recent tornado in Wichita. The Flying Stove, MMM Sandwiches and B.S. Sandwich Press all will be set up in the parking lot of the Wichita Ice Center from noon to 3 p.m. Sunday.
