With only a staff of 3, we are a volunteer-based organization.

We rely on those that are generous enough to donate their time. Contact us if you are interested in volunteering!

The Full Belly Project Staff


Jock Brandis

Director of Research and Development

Jock is the founder of Full Belly and The Lead inventor of its Technology. He realized while in the movie business that if he could make professional wrestling look somewhat real, then bringing efficient tools to small farmers around the world would be a cinch. He also discovered that it's the most fun at a job he has ever had!

Megan is also a former volunteer turned employee. She is a student of the Anthropology Department at UNCW, as well as a potter. Gifted with incredible creativity, intelligence and a penchant for organization, Megan helps keep Jock and Amanda sane as they push forward to accomplish our mission.
