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, fruit cups, canned fruit, canned kidney beans/chickpeas, and school supplies for our ‘Back to School’ program.
We gratefully acknowledge the significant support of KRP Properties in providing our warehouse.

The Kanata Food Cupboard will be closed for client services and volunteer activities on Monday, August 3rd. Normal operations will resume on Tuesday, August 4th. Enjoy your long weekend!
