The 2015-2016 school year is underway and our new website is up and running. We hope it will provide easier access to information for our families, students and staff. We will be making improvements to this site in the coming months as we receive feedback from you and our other visitors.

Alliance Education Center has recently partnered with the Open Door Mobile Pantry to provide food support to students and their families. Each Friday, Alliance Education Center Social Worker, Kate Speedling, along with student volunteers, travel to the The Open Door Mobile Pantry and return to Alliance with an abundance of healthy, wholesome food to send home with students for their families.
In addition to the partnership with Alliance Education Center, the Open Door Mobile Pantry partners with Cedar School, Lebanon Education Center, and Dakota County Technical College to bring food to students on a regular basis.
The Open Door is the largest non-profit food shelf in Dakota County providing food distribution across the south metro area. Through its collective programs, The Open Door serves approximately 5,500–6,000 individuals each month and distributes over 1.3 million pounds of healthy food annually. We are excited to partner with such a valuable organization and are thankful for the work they do to provide food support to our students and families.
