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, baked goods, granola bars, fruit cups, canned fruit, level 1 and 3 jars of baby food, and juice boxes suitable for school lunches.
We gratefully acknowledge the significant support of KRP Properties in providing our warehouse.
The countdown is on! The Kanata Food Cupboard is marking 30 years of service this year with a community event on May 30. We hope you can join us!
