• Alex W. Spence has an on-site food and school supply pantry known as the Peace Pantry. Throughout the year, we collect donations to offer to students and families who need them.

    Currently, our pantry could use: 

    • Soups
    • Waters
    • Hygiene Products



    The Great Turkey Race

    Every November, we do a food drive called "The Great Turkey Race". Students compete in their advisory class to see who could donate the most non-perishable food items. For each item students donated, they received a feather to hang on the turkey outside their classroom. Last year, we were able to collect over 2,000 non-perishable food items. More importantly, we were able to give away boxes of food to over 40 of our families during the holidays. 

  • If you or someone you know is in need of food or school supplies, please contact Ms. Zavaleta at mzavaleta@dallasisd.org
