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, granola bars, macaroni and cheese, and canned vegetables.
We gratefully acknowledge the significant support of the KRP Development Group in providing our warehouse.

Join us on December 6th to help unload the buses as part of the OC Transpo ‘Fill the Bus’ Food Drive. This is a family-friendly volunteer event being held at our warehouse. We hope to see you there!
