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 bagged rice (900 grams); canned tuna, salmon, corn, peas; and packaged casseroles/side dishes. Donations of school supplies are also needed (no binders please).
We gratefully acknowledge the significant support of the KRP Development Group in providing our warehouse.

Civic Holiday schedule

The Kanata Food Cupboard is closed on August 4 for the Civic Holiday. We will reopen on August 5 for clients and all regular volunteer activities. Enjoy the long weekend!
