About Us

Vision: The vision of the Full Belly Project is that the residents of rural communities in developing countries live lives of abundance - that they awake each morning to days of economic possibility and go to sleep each night with bellies that are full.

Mission: Our mission is to relieve hunger by taking advantage of the highly nutritious properties of peanuts through appropriate agricultural technology.

Strategies: Our strategy is to effect international distribution of unique labor saving devices, and where necessary, provide the parts to construct such devices whose uses will relieve hunger, improve nutrition, and provide economic opportunities to impoverished rural areas, especially for women.

We offer at low or no cost the plans and/or parts for the construction of hand operated devices for these purposes:

  • Shelling of peanuts (Arachis hypogaea L.)
  • Compressing of spent peanut shells into briquettes
  • Mechanical production of peanut butter
