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, and peas. Empty egg cartons are also required, as are donations of school supplies (no binders please).
We gratefully acknowledge the significant support of the KRP Development Group in providing our warehouse.

Thank you Investors Group for your ongoing support! The annual golf tournament this year raised over $14,000 for the Kanata Food Cupboard! Incredible!!
