We currently need volunteers in these positions:

  • design and test new machines in the workshop

  • organize local fundraising events

  • increase outreach in the community and on the Internet

  • translate build instructions in languages not yet offered


Volunteering with The Full Belly Project has many benefits which include

  • helping others in a direct and meaningful way

  • fighting hunger and poverty here and around the world

  • growing as a person and learning valuable life lessons and skills




Outreach Volunteers improve their public speaking and people management skills by interacting with others and teaching them about the organization's mission.

Fundraising Volunteers learn to implement grassroots fundraising techniques, necessary to sustain any organization. Fundraising volunteers learn event planning, and develop organizational, marketing, and internet research skills to perform efficient and effective fundraising campaigns.

Design Volunteers learn basic carpentry, metal working, and shop safety skills. Some Full Belly Project volunteers may even participate in the entire design process of a device, acquiring a valuable skill for future endeavors.





If you are interested in volunteering at the Full Belly Project on the design site, we invite you to contact us at info@thefullbellyproject.org prior to attending a design session. Design sessions are held Saturdays from 9:30am until 12:30pm. We are in the blue warehouse at the corner of Chestnut Street and 11th Street.  Also, feel free to e-mail us regarding outreach and fundraiser help.
