The Lord’s Diner is increasing its reach to Pittsburg.
The Pittsburg location, at 408 N. Locust, will help serve the hungry and will follow Wichita’s model, providing daily meals and utilizing volunteers and community to carry out its mission, according to a news release issued Monday by the Catholic Diocese of Wichita.
The Lord’s Diner opened in downtown Wichita in February 2002. It has since opened locations at 2825 S. Hillside in Planeview and has a food truck serving Evergreen Recreation Center and the Hilltop neighborhood at 1329 S. Terrace.
“The mission of the Lord’s Diner is to serve hungry people,” said Jan Haberly, the Lord’s Diner’s director. “After spending time studying the need in the area and embracing the enthusiasm of so many in the community eager to help their neighbors, the decision to move forward was made.”
The Pittsburg Lord’s Diner is expected to be serving guests by the end of the year.
