The Full Belly Project

About six years ago, Jock Brandis started Fully Belly Project as a non-profit organization focused on international development work in developing countries. Today’s mission statement further defines the organization’s goal to design and distribute income-generation agricultural devices to improve life in developing countries. While keeping the staff small and working with the Peace Corps and other volunteers, the Full Belly Project is working to develop a network of members and individual chapters across the US. Each chapter would in turn work directly with the residents of rural communities in a chosen country to unlock the economic possibility and go to sleep at night with bellies that are full.

While the Full Belly Project is a non-profit, there is still an entrepreneurial side to their organization. The Full Belly Project won the Coastal Entrepreneurship Award for Acceleration of Innovation Program, and the UNCW Entrepreneurship Center has been able to help with the structure of their 501 c 3 while serving as a mentor. With over 90% of donations coming from Wilmington, the UNCWEC also helped maximize their fund-raising efforts.
