Philly.com reported Mason Wartman appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Tuesday afternoon. Wartman owns Rosa’s Fresh Pizza at 25 S. 11th Street in Philadelphia, where pizza is $1 a slice and $8 for a whole pie.
But that’s not all Rosa’s is known for. Customers have the chance to pay it forward when they purchase their dollar slices; they can also donate an additional dollar to help feed the homeless and those in need. Post-it notes cover the walls inside the shop from patrons wishing those in need some words of encouragement.
Wartman told Ellen his shop feeds 30-40 people in need every day and hopes other companies like his will adopt the food-sharing program to help the Philadelphia community. Always down to help out a good cause, Ellen presented Wartman with a $10,000 check from Shutterfly.
