As the alluring autumn leaves introduces a new season, a fun event for the entire family will be held in Cherry Hill. The third annual Korean Food and Culture Festival will be held on Oct. 22 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at The First Korean United Methodist Church of Cherry Hill, located at 1995 E. Marlton Pike in Cherry Hill.

Although the festival introduces Korean food and culture, the ultimate purpose is to support missions. The profits from the food will be used to support children in Africa who are suffering and dying from malaria. In addition, the profits of the festival will be used to repair the houses affected by Superstorm Sandy four years ago in New Jersey.

More than 10 dishes such as bulgogi (marinated beef BBQ), bibim bap (vegetables and rice), man doo (Korean dumplings), kim chee (fermented cabbage), jap chae (sweet potato noodles with vegetables), ho dduk (slightly fried pancake and others will be at the festival. The festival allows visitors to observe the cooking process and purchase them. Korean cultural performances will be held at 1 p.m., at the church family center. Performances include Korean traditional dancing, hand-fan dance and taekwondo demonstrations. There is no admission fee. Food is for purchase.
