Put your love for Korean food to the challenge with the newest initiative, #KfoodSGunited, launched by the Embassy of the Republic of Korea. In support of the ‘stay home’ circuit breaker measures, the Korean Embassy is pleased to organize a nationwide event aiming to share the culture and taste of Korea, and at the same time do its part to give back and cheer for the healthcare community, who are dedicating themselves in the fight against COVID-19. The K-Food Online Festival is set to kick off online from 27 May 2020 (Wednesday) to 14 June 2020 (Sunday).
In partnership with the Korean Food and Beverage Association in Singapore (KFBS) and Majulah Movement, a donation platform for healthcare staff and migrant workers, the Korean Embassy will be donating SGD 5,000 worth of Korean meal boxes to support healthcare workers in Sengkang General Hospital.
Mr. Ahn Young-jip, the Ambassador of the Republic of Korea added:
“Koreans have maintained a tradition to share food with families, friends, and neighbors after ceremonies or rituals, strengthening solidarity spirit. I hope to share the spirit with everyone through K-Food Online Festival. I also would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude towards Singaporeans’ love for Korean cuisine and deliver a humble token of appreciation to the medical front-liners, who are the true heroes of the global pandemic. Korea will fight alongside with Singapore, and we can overcome this crisis together.”
