(Westchester Magazine) With waiters, hostesses, dish washers, and other restaurant staff wondering when they’ll see another paycheck, a number of chefs across Westchester are at the stoves of their otherwise closed eateries making soup for industry colleagues who are struggling under the COVID-19 restrictions.

“There is an economic bomb slowly exploding in front of us,” says Eric Korn, executive chef at Monteverde at Oldstone in Cortlandt Manor who, along with Louie Lanza, head of Peekskill-based Hudson Hospitality Group, is spearheading the ambitious Million Gallons initiative to cook soup for unemployed restaurant workers, and anyone who needs it.
