KfoodSGunited Nationwide Event for Korean Food Lovers

Tuesday, June 02, 2020

In support of the “stay home” circuit breaker measures, the Embassy of the Republic of Korea 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).

Following the first K-Pop Online Fest held recently to encourage staying active at home, the newest K-Food initiative will continue to keep up the hype, inviting both Korean food lovers and cooking enthusiasts to share their love for Korean cuisine through the K-Food Challenge. In addition to sharing love with Korean cuisine, the challenge will be a great way to strengthen family bond, while supporting the Korean food-related service providers in Singapore.

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.”

Simply record a video of yourself cooking or tasting your favourite Korean dishes, and post the video online with a hashtag #KfoodSGunited. You may stand a chance to walk away with attractive vouchers from local Korean marts and restaurants, worth SGD 5,000 in combined value.
