The annual cultural and charity fundraising, hosted by the Service Department for Diplomatic Corps, will be held in Hanoi on December 6.

The event is sponsored by Ambassador Nguyen Nguyet Nga, spouse of Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Foreign Affairs Pham Binh Minh.

According to the organisers, the 2020 International Food Festival aims to enhance cultural exchanges and mutual understanding among countries.

It will also introduce Vietnam to international friends via embassies and foreign cultural centres, and help local enterprises and provinces to promote their brands and products.

The festival also has a humanitarian purpose with the donations and contributions from participating organisations and individuals and proceeds to be donated to charitable activities implemented by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

So far, the previous festivals throughout the year raised nearly VND 2.6 billion (USD 112,000), which was donated to handicapped people, orphans and the poor.

In recent years, the organisers have donated funds for the construction of Binh Thuat Kindergarten in the northern province of Yen Bai, a new bridge in the southern province of Long An, and 10 scholarships for students in the southern province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau, among others.

Visitors can also enjoy musical performances, participate in a cooking contest and purchase traditional handicrafts from many countries.

Van Phuc Diplomatic Compound is located at 298 Kim Ma Street. Entrance VND 10,000 (USD 0.44).
