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, canned fruit, canned kidney beans/chickpeas, canned peas, packages of rice (900 grams), and baking goods.
We gratefully acknowledge the significant support of KRP Properties in providing our warehouse.

Thank you OutGROW OutPLAY! The children’s consignment sale event at Bell Sensplex on September 18-20 brought in approximately 2500 lbs of food for the Kanata Food Cupboard! Food drives are needed all year long so we appreciate the support.
