Full Belly and the Community

The Full Belly Project exists because of the time and commitment of our community members. With a small staff and big goals, we couldn't do it without our friends and supporters!

Whether you're interested in fundraising, accounting and social media, or working in the shop, there's a place for you at FBP! Our goal is to give volunteers and interns a meaningful experience in the area of their choice.

Partnering with local businesses for fundraisers is one of our favorite things! Raising awareness and bringing new customers to small businesses, while raising money to empower rural communities is a win-win!

Find Full Belly out and about during the warmer months at events like Riverfest, Fire in the Pines, Parking Day and more! We love getting out in Wilmington, talking about Full Belly's mission and making new friends! 

Full Belly needs volunteers for our Board of Directors!

Meet Emily! 

I am a junior at New Hanover High School in the Lyceum Academy, and got involved at Full Belly through a service learning class. Upon graduation in 2018, I hope to go to college and continue working in sustainable development in some way.

"I volunteer at Full Belly Project because I believe the only way we can truly help others is to empower others to help themselves. I think Full Belly works really hard to accomplish that goal, and I am happy to be a part of it."
