Pisgah Health Foundation has approved a COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund request to Brevard Academy, a public charter school in Pisgah Forest.

The pandemic has put a financial strain on the budget and families of Brevard Academy, according to a press release.

The COVID-19 funding will be used to pay for school lunches for a large number of students through the remainder of the 2020-2021 academic school year.

Although community response to food security needs have made a difference, there are still a number of families in need of support, the release said.

This funding will be used to provide hot meals to their students.

Pisgah Health Foundation is grateful to support Brevard Academy to ensure that all students’ needs are met in providing hot meals for their lunch.

The Pisgah Health Foundation is a public 501 (c)(3) charity founded in 2019 by a board of seven caring individuals focused on improving the health, wellness and lives of Western North Carolina residents. The organization evolved out of the Transylvania Regional Hospital Foundation.

Pisgah Health Foundation's drive is to improve health and wellness by addressing healthy opportunities in targeted social determinants of health areas including health, food insecurity, housing, social cohesion and education.

Board Members include Cathleen Blanchard; Dave Neumann, Esq; Jamie Ramsey, MD; Jeremy Purcell, Art Fisher; Jim Tyson, MD; Jim Wright, MD. Lex Green, CPA serves as President.
