The Lord's Diner serves meals 365 days a year to those in need. St. Thomas Aquinas parish volunteers serve at The Diner on the 30th day of each month. Volunteers may work in the afternoon (Noon-3 p.m.) preparing food or in the evening serving and cleaning up (5-8 p.m.).  A food handler's card is required for volunteers, but is easy to obtain through a free course.  The Diocese also requires all new volunteers to take a Virtus class. The Lord's Diner offers Virtus classes the first Saturday of every month at 10:00. Look on this page for more information regarding the Food Handler course as it becomes available.  Click here for a link to find times for other Virtus training classes.

Volunteer Parking & Entrance Information

The volunteer parking lot and volunteer entrance are located on the east side of the building and are accessible from the alley north of the Diner, from the alley off Central or from Topeka Street (which is one way south).  Overflow parking is in the South lot on the east side or across the street in the small lot at the corner of Broadway and Central.  Please enter through the Volunteer Entrance on the east side of the building.

The Volunteer entrance will be unlocked during the Prep shift (9-2 pm) and during the Serving shift (4:45 - 7:30 pm).  There is a ramp at this door and a doorbell in the event you arrive and the door is locked. We will be installing lighting in this new lot at some point in the near future, but, as always, officers will provide security when you go to leave at night.


Food Handlers Classes

Don’t forget….the City of Wichita Environmental Health Department offers classes on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays and Mondays of each month. Please call 316-268-8351 to register for a specific class. Copies of the schedule are available at the Broadway Diner or you can view the schedule online at . The City of Wichita has updated their website so you will first select “departments”, then select “Public Works & Utilities” / “Environment” / “Food & Tobacco.”

If you would prefer to do an online class, ServSafe is the only on-line class approved by the city. There is a $15 fee and after completion, a certificate can be printed off, but it needs to be taken to the Health Department to exchange for the food handler’s card. Please click here for a link to their website.
