New Delhi: 28/4/18;Odisha Food Festival has been kicked off at the Press Club, New Delhi and will continue till April 29.

Speaking to OTV, Parthasarathy Jena, President, Odisha Development Forum, said,”We are thinking of organizing this festival every year. This will continue for 3 days i.e April 27, 28 and 29. We are organising this event to promote Odisha’s traditional food.”
