A portion of every dollar you spend at the Funky Food Truck Festival goes to AIDS Alabama. Why? To support their work to prevent the spread of HIV, house the homeless and provide outpatient mental health and substance abuse services to some of Birmingham’s most vulnerable. 

Cahaba Brewing, food truck owners and vendors are generously donating a percentage of the day’s sales to AIDS Alabama to support their programs
