Just like any good mom, this Oklahoma restaurant owner wants to make sure everyone is well fed.
When Ashley Jiron, owner of sandwich shop P.B. Jams in Warr Acres realized someone was sifting through her trash for food she posted fliers promising a free meal with no questions asked. The fliers told the anonymous person, “You’re a human being and worth more than a meal from a dumpster.” Her sentiment went viral after she also posted the notice on Facebook.
“I am a mother of two little girls and I’ve struggled like a lot of single parents out there, and I’ve had to ask for state assistance, food stamps, and such,” Jiron told ABC News, adding, “Sometimes as simple as even just a peanut butter and jelly sandwich is very comforting to somebody and maybe even offer them a few words.”
Her peanut butter and jelly shop has gained worldwide attention thanks to her humanity. Jiron plans to put the new celebrity status to good use. This past Sunday she launched the #ShareTheNuts program, which allows patrons to pay for the less fortunate.
