Welcome to the Kanata Food Cupboard

The Kanata Food Cupboard is a non-profit agency that provides service to self-identifying individuals who live in the Kanata wards (North and South) of Ottawa and require emergency food.

High priority items needed include canned salmon/flaked meat, granola bars, canned fruit, canned green and yellow beans, canned peas, packages of rice (900 grams), and baking goods.
We gratefully acknowledge the significant support of KRP Properties in providing our warehouse.

Thank you Kanata! Approximately 4200 pounds of food was collected along the parade route during the Santa Claus Parade on November 14. And monetary donations collected along the parade route exceeded $4,000. Thank you for your support!

Christmas Food Assistance

Christmas is still two months away, but if you live in Kanata and require food and gift assistance this year, please submit your Christmas form. Forms will be accepted until December 1st.

Volunteers Needed

We require pairs of adult volunteers to deliver Christmas hampers on December 17th and 19th. If you are available for a few hours on either day, please complete the volunteer information form online.
