ANDOVER, Kansas – The Lord’s Diner is hitting the streets in a new food truck.
On Wednesday, volunteers worked some kinks out of their system and received a blessing before they take their outreach on the road.
“It’s exciting. It’s fun, it’s gonna be great to go out and serve the community,” explains Paul Cater, who is the special projects manager at the Lord’s Diner.
The Lord’s Diner is getting a hot meal to those who need it most.
“We’re just getting started we’ll see how popular it is, see just you know, we’ll see!” says Cater.
Paul Cater is a member of the team who will take this new food truck out to northwest Wichita to the Evergreen Community Center.
Cater says, “We’ll hopefully get a lot of families, lots of kids coming from school, just serving that neighborhood.”
On Wednesday night, the group did a test run to see if all systems are a ‘go’ for serving as many as 400 hot meals from the truck each day.
They’ll serve hot meals on the west side of the Evergreen Community Center from 4:30 to 6 p.m. daily.
Before this truck hits the road, a blessing for its mission.
“The great commandment of love for one another, send your blessing on this truck and your servants who will be a part of this ministry.”
The Lord’s Diner may eventually take the truck to a variety of locations, after they figure out their system at the Evergreen Community Center.
