The idea of “paying it forward” isn’t new, but when paying it forward involves something as delicious as pizza, now you have national news.
For the past year, Rosa’s Fresh Pizza in Center City Philadelphia has been allowing patrons to turn an inexpensive lunch into a charitable affair. It began when a customer asked if he could buy a slice for a homeless person. Rosa’s is known for their affordable one dollar slices, so it was a small but kind gesture.
The owner, Mason Wartman, told NPR, “I took his dollar and ran out and got some Post-it notes and put one up to signify that a slice was purchased.”
