"I think we've all been in that position where we needed someone's help and we just needed someone to extend that hand," Ashley Jiron said

As she told KFOR, “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.”

“That really … it hurt me that someone had to do that,” Jiron continued.

So she took an unusual step, posting a sign that invited the Dumpster diver in for a free lunch next time.

“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 said no one’s come in yet, but she added, “I will not take down that sign until they come in.”

“I think we’ve all been in that position where we needed someone’s help and we just needed someone to extend that hand,” she said. “And if I can be that one person to extend that hand to another human being, then I will definitely do it.”
