114: Pay-it-Forward Pizza Feeds Homeless with Slices and Sticky Notes
Today on Cause Talk Radio, Megan and Joe talk to Mason Wartman, owner of Rosa's Fresh Pizza in Philadelphia. Over the past several months, Mason has become a media darling for his efforts to feed the homeless in his neighborhood. He's even appeared on Ellen!
Like all great ideas, Mason's is simple but powerful. When customers buy a slice of pizza they can buy another for someone in need. Rosa's walls are lined with sticky notes and well wishes that the homeless can redeem for a free slice.
Since the program began last year, Rosa's has given away 11,000 slices in a neighborhood that needs all the extra dough it can get.
