NBC 5: Teacher operates food pantry for students in need at Dallas school


When Brooke Varner, a biology teacher at Dallas ISD’s Woodrow Wilson High School, noticed some of her students didn’t have enough to eat, she wanted to act.

The “Woodrow Peace Pantry” fills a need – and students’ stomachs – at the school.
