In 2020, Mountain View School Division received a $6,000 grant from the Dauphin and District Community Foundation (DDCF)/Emergency Community Support Fund to support four Dauphin schools that run nutrition programs: Whitmore Elementary School, Henderson Elementary School, Mackenzie Middle School and Dauphin Regional Comprehensive Secondary School. The schools all used the funds to purchase food and food service items for their nutrition programs. Thanks, DDCF!
