When the Person Digging in the Trash Was Noticed by the Owner

With all the madness happening in the world, acts of genuine kindness still exist.

Restaurant owner left a touching note when she discovered someone digging in her trash

When an Oklahoma sandwich shop owner realized that someone had been digging through the dumpster, she left a touching message for the person rummaging for food in the trash.

Ashley Jiron, owner of P.B. Jams in Warr Acres, Oklahoma, noticed that some of the bags containing discarded food in the dumpster had been torn open, with some of the food removed.

“You’re a human being and worth more than a meal from a dumpster,” Jiron wrote in the note that she left on the restaurant’s front door and on the dumpster.

“It hurt me that someone had to do that,” the restaurateur told KFOR. She said she won’t take down the sign until someone comes in and takes her up on her offer to come inside for a complimentary sandwich, veggies and water.

“I think we’ve all been in that position where we’ve needed somebody’s help,” Jiron said.

Jiron has received a great dea of praise across social media for her kind gesture.
