Our beloved Jock has retired from the position of Director of Research & Development.
Although it isn't unusual to have such an announcement come from someone of his age, especially after the 20+ years he has given to the organization, we're still finding it strange to imagine a Jock-less Full Belly Project.
*However, Jock has worked closely with staff, volunteers and board members over the last year, since he first told of us his plans, to ensure that he set us up for a successful transition and impactful future.*
We intend to push Full Belly forward to not only accomplish our mission and Jock's vision, but also to honor his legacy of ingenuity and global humanitarianism.
So, we have been trained by THE BEST, and we are confident that we can bring Full Belly smoothly into a new era based on the foundation of innovation, sustainability, empowerment, and community that Jock built.
In addition, the 2019 Feast has been cancelled, as we must devote all of our limited resources to our project in Zambia and our new STEM program.
We hope to be able to have the next Feast sometime in 2020. Read More below to find the official statement from the Board of Directors.
*The Full Belly Board, staff, volunteers, and the communities around the world that we empower with sustainable innovations profoundly appreciate your many contributions to our mission.*
