ROSELLE, N.J. - A food drive in the honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his legacy of giving back to the community is being held by Mayor Christine Dansereau and the Borough of Roselle. 

Residents are asked to support the local food pantries located in Roselle and Elizabeth by donating to St Joseph and Heard A.M.E. food pantries. This will help them continue to provide food items to the homeless and those who are less fortunate neighbors in the area. 

“I would like to remind everyone that we should also give back throughout the year,” said Dansereau. “We tend to forget that these food pantry’s need help all year long.
