AFLAA in the News!
This week, Full Belly was mentioned in Star News Online for our Aflatoxin Alleviation (AFLAA) initiative! If you want to learn more about our fight against the dangerous food contaminant, aflatoxin, check out the news article! Overall, it’s an exciting glimpse into how we plan to utilize our recent grant from the Conservation, Food, and Health Foundation!
Full Belly Receives Grant!
The Conservation, Food and Health Foundation recently awarded $31,000 to the Full Belly Project to implement our Advancing Food Security and Livelihoods through Aflatoxin Alleviation (AFLAA) program in the southern African country of Zambia! In our work over the last four years with the Chipata District Farmers’ Association (CDFA), we've found that aflatoxin is a contributor to both hunger and poverty in this region!
We are so happy to share news of this grant, and we are already working to put it to good use in Zambia
Coffee Crawl - January 26th
The Full Belly Project will be participating as a featured nonprofit in the Wilmington Coffee Crawl on Saturday, January 26th! Tickets are $10 to participate, but proceeds go to sponsored nonprofits, like us! We will have a booth at Waterline Brewery, which will be the last stop on the tour! So make sure to come by between 12-6 to enjoy coffee samples from seven different coffee shops around Wilmington and stop by our table to chat about Full Belly on the last stop! If the caffeine doesn't get you jazzed up enough, chatting with us surely will! See you there!
