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 where it may have items that they cannot eat or do not like to eat.

Our food pantry is open to the public every Wednesday from 10:00am – 1:00pm at 2581 Atlantic Avenue Brooklyn, NY 11207 on the first-floor cafeteria.
