Thank you so much for making the 15th Annual Full Belly Feast the best it's ever been!
The 15th Annual Full Belly Feast was a blast due to the amazing number of our supporters that showed up to celebrate the work of the Full Belly Project with us, and the volunteers who contributed their time and effort to help it go off without a hitch!
We can't wait to see you all next year!
Ashlea Kosikowski had Jock on WECT just a few days before the Full Belly Feast to talk about what we do, and what the Feast means to FBP and the community!
As he mentions in the video, the Full Belly Project continues to develop new inventions to help those in rural communities. The Feast is the organization’s largest fundraiser, bringing in close to 20% of the group’s budget and it's held at the end of every February.

We have some exciting news about our Zambia 2017 Project!
We are receiving implementation support for the first 2 weeks of the project from NCBA CLUSA through a USAID-funded Farmer-to-Farmer Program managed by ACDI/VOCA!
We are so grateful for this assistance from these amazing organizations!
We plan to build and distribute 105 of our award winning Universal Nut Shellers to farmers in the surrounding villages to help them increase their food supply and incomes!
We need your help! With materials already on their way, our private sector partner had to back out at the last minute due to a financial crisis in Zambia. Now, with close to $10,000 already invested in the project, this tiny nonprofit with an equally tiny budget is pushing forward to honor our mission and the people of Zambia.

Jock has returned from his trip to Nairobi, Kenya where he presented his research on aflatoxin to the world's leading aflatoxin researchers at the Integrated Nutrition Conference earlier this month. Jock shared that one of the highlights from his trip was doing a demonstration showing how aflatoxin testing can be done anywhere, even without electricity or refrigeration. With the potential to stunt growth and development in children, aflatoxin is a harmful bacteria found on a variety of nuts and grains. This latest update in aflatoxin research has the potential to make a huge impact on communities around the world. Keep an eye out for more stories and pictures from Jock's trip!
