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. 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. If I’m ever up that way, I am definitely going to come in & eat!
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.
