The Kanata Food Cupboard functions as a non-profit, volunteer driven organization and is a registered charity which has been helping people in the area since 1985. Services are provided to all residents of Kanata regardless of race, ethnicity, ability, age, sexual orientation, income or religion. The organization is non-sectarian, non-denominational, non partisan, working for the best interest of its members and clients. We collect and distribute food products to self-identifying individuals requiring emergency food service. We support and encourage reform and social change that would eliminate the need for emergency food assistance. We refer individuals requesting additional services to community-based organizations that offer such services. We treat all persons with due respect, dignity and confidentiality.
