The big news around Wichita is the machinist strike at Spirit AeroSystems. When things aren’t going well, it’s always the local restaurant scene to be one of the first to step up.
Waffles N Stuff, a relatively new food truck specializing in zany waffle creations, is working out details to bring their truck out as a mid-week boost to morale.
They are currently working out times and details with the 2nd and 3rd shift organizers to offer food at no charge to help support the cause. The owner of the truck is one of those on strike and has already brought out 40–50 cases of water to all the gates. Now they will one-up that with food.
If someone you know is out working those picket lines, be sure to pass it on.
To find out the finalized details, be sure to follow Waffles N Stuff on Facebook.
