Our Hometown

We are currently in 67 countries around the world, but our impact is a credit to our local community!

Founded in Wilmington, North Carolina, we draw most of our donors, supporters, and volunteers from right here at home! Full Belly is working with our local community to make a global impact, and we are so proud and grateful to have such an amazing pool of support within arms reach. Together, we can start local to act global!

Local Involvement


Honors service learning

Similar to our internships, this program is geared towards bringing in High School students so that they can contribute to our mission and vision while learning more about service in the process!

This amazing program is in partnership with New Hanover High School and the first ever service-learning program in Wilmington! Students work with us at Full Belly to bridge the gap between the classroom and the greater community and to learn more about ways that they can give back, no matter their age!



Every semester, we seek new interns to support the Full Belly Project! Internships vary in specialty, such as Social Media, Advertising, Event Planning, and more!

Our goal is to work with the bright young minds in our community to not only push our organization forward with fresh perspectives, but to also help these individuals reach their own goals and dreams! We coordinate with our interns directly to construct programs that are unique to their needs as well as our own!



Our volunteers are a vital part to our success as a nonprofit organization! We are so thankful to have a large pool of local supports who volunteer their time to make a difference with Full Belly! From our dedicated volunteers who spend every Saturday morning building innovative tech in the workshop to those who help us table at community events, we have a range of supporters who give back in many different ways!

And you can give back, too! Click the link below to see all of our upcoming volunteer events!
