Walter’s Hot Dogs: Feeding the Community in Times of Need

Since very early on in our new ‘Covid-19 World’ Walters has re-invented themselves, not only by finding creative ways of providing regular (and new!) customers with a ‘taste’ of ‘normalcy’, but by also giving back to the community.

On March 18, Walter’s teamed up with Bona Bona Ice Cream to provide free hot dogs and ice cream to children in the Westchester Community Opportunity program in New Rochelle, serving about 200 people, including families and children who relied on their schools for food, the National Guard, and medical workers. That translated to more than 500 hot dogs and 200 cones.

Owners Gene-Christian Baca and Katharine DeCicco have also been feeding our healthcare heroes at White Plains Hospital.

“We’re all in a time of need right now and facing so many uncontrollables,’’ Baca told the Journal News. “Being here is something that we can control, and it’s our way of serving our community. It’s important that we remember that community is everything, even during this time of separation.”

Walter’s Hot Dogs celebrated its 100th anniversary last year. In addition to its original Mamaroneck locations has restaurants in Stamford, Ct. and White Plains.
