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 stage 3 jars of baby food, bagged rice (900 grams), canned tuna/salmon/flaked meat, canned corn, and juice boxes (size appropriate for school lunches).
We gratefully acknowledge the significant support of the KRP Development Group in providing our warehouse.

Enjoy an Ottawa Senators afternoon game with your family and support the Kanata Food Cupboard at the same time! Buy your tickets for the November 22 afternoon game against the St. Louis Blues and use the promo code SUPPORTFOODBANK. A portion of your ticket sales will go to the Kanata Food Cupboard!
