Pizza Joint "Pies It Forward" To Help The Less Fortunate
By opening a restaurant, Phil Solorzano didn't realize he would go on to help so many people. After a customer didn't want the drink that included in his meal, the kind owner decided to "give it to the next guy." After this nice gesture, the “Pie It Forward" movement was started.
You may remember the story about the Philadelphia restaurant, whose customers started leaving sticky notes to buy another customer a slice of pizza. Well, Phil decided to take after that awesome trend. It started with a sticky note placed on the Coke machine to pay for a future drink. Now it's not just drinks, people are leaving money for slices or whatever else someone might want. The wall had 15 stickers on it by the end of the first night, and the 'Pie it Forward Wall' was born.
“We don't just do it in the store," he told Good News Network. “There's a couple spots in the city with a lot of homeless people, so when pizza is about three hours old, I throw it in the box and get in my pizza truck and take it to them."
