Community Healthcare Network

For Patients

Food Pantry

Community Healthcare Network (CHN) and Institute of Community Living (ICL) has come together to create a food pantry for community residents to receive groceries for free. Participants can choose the foods they want instead of receiving something pre-bagged which may have items that they cannot eat or do not like to eat.

Our food pantry is open every Wednesday from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm at 2581 Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn, on the first-floor cafeteria, room 107B. The entrance is on Georgia Avenue.
