Restaurant owner leaves message for ‘dumpster diver’

A restaurant owner in Oklahoma is going above and beyond to help someone apparently in need of a meal.
According to KFOR, the owner of P.B. Jams recently noticed someone had been going through their trash, specifically food containers.
The woman says it broke her heart to know someone was “dumpster diving.” So instead of ignoring it, Ashley Jiron told KFOR she decided to do something about it.
“It hurt me that someone had to do that,” she told KFOR.
So Ashley put a sign outside her restaurant offering a free meal to whomever was eating food from the dumpster.
The sign read:
“To the person going through our trash for their next meal, you’re a human being and worth more than a meal from the dumpster. Please come in during business hours for a classic Pb&j, fresh veggies, and a cup of water at no charge. No questions asked. – your friend, the owner.”
Jiron told KFOR that no one has come in yet, and she’s not taking the sign down until the person takes her up on her offer.
Jiron told KFOR that a free meal is the least she can do for someone who is obviously down on their luck.
“I think we’ve all been in that position where we needed someone’s help and we just needed someone to extend that hand and if I can be that one person to extend that hand to another human being then I will definitely do it,” she said.

Oklahoma Restaurant Owner Leaves Note Inviting Dumpster Diver to a Free Meal

Ashley Jiron was outside her Warr Acres, Oklahoma, restaurant when she noticed that someone had been going through the dumpster.

“I had gone to the back to go put some trash in the dumpster, and I had noticed that some bags and containers with food were emptied and gone through,” Jiron told ABC News. “Immediately, of course, my heart sank, and I knew I needed to do something about it right away.”

Jiron, 30, who owns P.B. Jams, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich spot, took action and posted a note on the dumpster outside.

“Unfortunately, I was not able to see that person or have the chance to talk to them or invite them in, so I thought that leaving a note might do the trick for me and get them in for me,” she said.

The note invited the person in, no questions asked, for a free sandwich and vegetables. For Jiron, the gesture was personal.

“I am a mother of two little girls and I’ve struggled like a lot of single parents out there, and I’ve had to ask for state assistance food stamps and such,” she said. “Sometimes at the end of the month there wasn’t enough to feed me and my family. Something as simple as even just a peanut butter and jelly sandwich is very comforting to somebody and maybe even offer them a few words.”
