Donation overview

All the dollars and cents count – every little bit helps.  83% of the Kanata Food Cupboard’s funding comes from people in the community; the rest is from government support.

Supporting your community with a Kanata Food Cupboard donation really makes a difference in someone’s life – fewer hungry kids at schools, families and individuals get through their hard times faster.

Donations help in so many practical ways:

  • Buy essential food items
  • Purchase fresh foods like milk, meat, fruits and vegetables.
  • Help pay for day to day food bank operations like warehouse rent and office supplies
  • Sponsor families during special holidays

Stretching your donated dollar further

Every donated dollar given to the Food Cupboard is worth more than a dollar because we can make bulk purchases from food suppliers.  For example we are able to purchase cases of items instead of individual cans and buying by the case induces a lower price from food merchants.  That’s the kind of purchasing power your donated dollars give!

Donating is fast, easy and convenient:

Reward points – the Kanata Food Cupboard will use your donated points to make purchases of items in need.

Business donations – for businesses to contribute funds or professional assistance.
