The Owner Of A Sandwich Shop Noticed Someone Was Going Through Her Dumpster And Did Something Amazing

"You are a human being and worth more than a meal from a dumpster."

Posted on

Instagram user Greg King spotted this sign outside P.B. Jams, a sandwich shop in Oklahoma City.

The sign reads:

To the person going through our trash for their next meal,

You're a human being worth more than a meal from a dumpster. Please come in during operating hours for a classic PB&J, fresh veggies, and a cup of water at no charge. No questions asked.

She said that if she has the chance to help someone in need who comes to her restaurant, she definitely wouldn't think twice about it. The person going through her dumpster has yet to come in, however.

Jiron's sign spread across sites including Twitter and Reddit over the weekend, and users have been pouring into the restaurant's Facebook page to let her know how touched they were by her offer.
