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, canned peas, large cans/bottles of juice, and baking goods.
We gratefully acknowledge the significant support of KRP Properties in providing our warehouse.

Thank you Brown’s Martial Arts and Holy Redeemer Church for your recent food drives! Food drives are needed all year long so we appreciate the support. Thank you to Brown’s Martial Arts as well for the monetary donation!
