Oklahoma City Business Leaves Message For Dumpster Diver, Offers Meal
OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – An Oklahoma City restaurant is opening their doors to someone many may turn away.
The owner of P.B. Jams, in Warr Acres, recently noticed someone had been rummaging through the trash, specifically food containers.
She says it broke her heart to know someone was so down on their luck they would be digging through her trash. So, rather than ignore it, she decided to help that person out.
Ashley Jiron, owner of P.B. Jams, said, “Last week, I had noticed some bags, when I had taken out the trash, were torn open and some of the food was taken out.”
Ashley simply could not ignore what she saw that day.
“That really, it hurt me that someone had to do that,” she said.
So she put a sign on the dumpster and at the front door, telling whomever was eating from her trash that they’re “a human being, and worth more than a meal from a dumpster.”
The sign goes on to say the person is welcome to come in to the sandwich shop for a meal, free of charge.
Ashley said, “I will not take down that sign until they come in.”
She says she knows pride may keep that person away; however, she is hoping they will take her up on this offer.
She says a free meal is the least she can do for someone who is obviously down on their luck.
