The lunchtime rush at Rosa's Fresh Pizza in Center City Philadelphia where customers pay extra money to buy slices for the homeless. Elizabeth Fiedler/WHYY Some pizza restaurants decorate the walls with signed photos of minor local celebrities who once stopped by for a slice. At Rosa's Fresh Pizza in Philadelphia the shop is adorned with post-it notes and letters. The messages are from customers who gave $1 so homeless members in the community could get a slice, which cost $1. "The homeless, they come in and say, 'I hear you give out free pizza to homeless people,' " owner Mason Wartman tells The Salt. The pay-it-forward pizza program started about a year ago, Wartman says, when one paying customer asked if he could buy a slice for a homeless person. "I said 'Sure.' I took his dollar and ran out and got some post-it notes and put one up to signify that a slice was purchased," he recalls. Pay-it-forward pizza was born.
