A Slice for a Cause: Rosa’s Fresh Pizza

The Lawrence family dines at Rosa's Fresh Pizza in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Ever get that burning yearning for a delicious, greasy slice of cheese pizza, knowing damn well that it doesn’t fit in your new Paleo diet regimen? Me neither, but sometimes I have felt a little guilty indulging in the pleasures of a good pie… But not anymore.

You see Rosa’s Fresh Pizza ( 25 S. 11th Street, Between Market and Chestnut)
Philadelphia, PA 19107)  has a special topping on their business model that is gauranteed to make you feel good about each slice. Creator of the now viral “Pay it forward pizza program”, Owner Mason Wartman, insures that for each piece of pizza purchased at Rosa’s, one slice is donated to the homeless. So if you buy a pie(8 slices) Rosa’s will sit 8 slices on the counter for homeless members of our community, sometimes 40 a day, to walk in and pick up a slice at no cost!

Wartman quit a big time Wall Street gig in search of a more community transforming venture, and we are really inspired by it. Ellen Degenerous was excited too, so much so she just donated 10,000 to the movement.

Next time you are downtown and you have a need for cheese, make your dollar count, support someone in need and keep the movement moving!
