As part of Viva La Brisa mission, we are community servants and to help others in our community in any way we can. With every Viva La Brisa purchase, you will be supporting two great charities that we have partnered with such as the National CMV Foundation to help bring awareness of Cytomegalovirus infection and Community Food Bank of Alabama helping those struggling to feed their families in Alabama. We will be making donations to these organizations and updating this page with the difference you are making in their lives. To learn more about these organizations, see the links below and how you can donate directly.
Community Food Bank of Alabama
The Community Food Bank of Central Alabama partners with more than 100 grocery stores across Central Alabama on a very special donation program that ensures wholesome food reaches the tables of families in need instead of overflowing landfills. Five days a week the Community Food Bank’s trucks pick up food donations from partners including Publix Super Markets, Walmart, Sam’s Club, Whole Foods, Aldi, Winn Dixie, Target, and more. In 2017, these stores donated more than 5.1 million meals that then supplied 243 food pantries and shelters. That food helped us feed between 60,000 - 80,000 children, seniors, veterans and families in Central Alabama each month.
