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.

For more information browse this website or download our brochure.

High priority items needed include bagged rice (900 grams), baking goods (e.g. cake/muffin mixes, flour) large juice (1-2 litre bottles), size 6 diapers, toilet tissue, peas, and green/yellow beans.
We gratefully acknowledge the significant support of the KRP Development Group in providing our warehouse.
