We have officially launched the newest page on our website, "Managing Aflatoxin." We are so excited to share with you all the hard work put into this program, and we are very hopeful this initiative can make a big difference. Aflatoxin is a deadly food contaminant that, when ingested, often leads to liver cancer or stunted child development. With our 5-Step plan for prevention, reduction, and management, as well as our Aflascreen Program that tracks and protects shipments of food in the global market, we are confident that we can help so many communities around the world. Check out the new page by following the link below!
A documentary about Jock Brandis, the founder and current Director of Research and Development of the Full Belly Project, made its grand television debut on KCET for our friends over on the West Coast! This documentary covered several impactful moments in Full Belly’s recent history, and the ways in which Jock uses creativity, ingenuity, and the resources of Full Belly to make meaningful differences in the world. We are so thankful and proud of the hard work that was put into making this documentary, and we hope everyone enjoyed seeing it!
For our friends and supporters who were unable to see it, please follow the link below to watch it online! It’s totally worth it!
Just before our successful Full Belly Feast Gala this past March, our very own Executive Director, Amanda Coulter, was interviewed by WILMA, a local news organization that showcases the successful and inspiring women in our community. Amanda is an extremely vital member of the Full Belly Staff, and her leadership, creativity, and passion continue to push Full Belly towards an even brighter future.
“The Feast is one part Full Belly reunion, one part celebration of our work and one part information session on what we do, as old friends, supporters and volunteers come to catch up with us, while new friends come to learn more,” said Jock Brandis, director of R&D and founder of The Full Belly Project. “This year, we’re giving everyone the Hollywood treatment, and did I mention it’s all for a good cause?”

"Amanda Coulter, executive director of the Full Belly Project, will soon announce a new mission and new vision for the organization that was founded in 2001.
“The event has been held at the Coastline Convention Center every year since we began hosting it,” Coulter said. “I believed it was time, if not maybe past time, to mix things up a bit.”
This year’s event will be a more formal affair, held at the Brooklyn Arts Center. It will feature passed hors d’oeuvres from Milner’s Cafe and Catering and music from the Phantom Playboys. There will be a full cash bar and silent auction."

"WILMINGTON -- Every Wednesday after school, students from Hoggard High School’s BETA club volunteer at the Full Belly Project to build irrigation devices for farmers in Africa.
Swahili Coast, a local business in the Cotton Exchange, will host a fundraiser to cover the cost of shipping so that these life-changing machines can get to those that need them most, and these teenagers’ dreams of improving their world can come true."
Read about our BETA project and come show support this Friday at our Sip and Shop event at Swahili Coast in the Cotton Exchange!
