World Food Day and Building Up Our Communities with thyssenkrupp and Copper and Brass Sales

thyssenkrupp and Copper and Brass sales give back by giving away restaurant gift cards on World Food Day

October 16, 2020 — Each year on October 16, known as World Food Day, people all around the world come together to raise awareness of the issues surrounding poverty and hunger. It might be shocking to learn that 45% of deaths in children under the age of five are caused by poor nutrition. Around 3,000,000 children each year die due to lack of access to nutrient-rich food.

The problem of world hunger is far bigger than we could hope to address here today. Even the issue of childhood nutrition. We don’t have all the answers, but there is one question to ask today: What can we do to help those who are hungry or less fortunate than we are?

We’re known here in North America, and particularly here in the USA, for absolutely loving our food. Many have excess available to us. How many times have you gone for seconds or thrown away leftovers? We’re lucky enough to be in a position to break bread over the family dinner table or go to lunch with our coworkers, telling stories and laughing while we take the food before us for granted. It’s not wrong to partake. But we should be asking: what can we do to help those who might be hungry and unable to gain access to proper nutrition?

Have you ever walked down the street or driven into a neighborhood where you’ve encountered a homeless person? Are you aware that there are food pantries in your area with waiting lists for individuals and families who are food insecure, meaning they lack access to enough good, nutritious food for themselves and their families?

Consider donating to your local food pantry or buy a homeless person a meal. Build up your community. We at thyssenkrupp Copper and Brass Sales will even help you with that. Today only (October 16, 2020), if you follow us and comment or reply on one of our three social media platforms, we’ll enter you in a drawing to win a lunch on us. We have gift cards to nationally known restaurants and fast food establishments that we want to use to help you or to help you help someone else. Please, buy someone less fortunate than you a meal. If you win one of our gift cards, we have no way to ensure that’s what you’ll do, but we hope that you will.

The details of how to win a gift card are in the terms and conditions listed below, but here’s the long and short of this promotion:

  • Like or follow us on LinkedIn, Facebook, or Twitter.
  • Comment on or reply to our #WorldFoodDay posts with your favorite place to eat lunch at while you’re at work
  • No employees or their family members allowed from thyssenkrupp
  • If you win, we’ll let you know within seven (7) days
