Half United (HU) is headquartered in the coastal city of Wilmington, North Carolina. In the early days, HU was run entirely by volunteers who believed in our mission to end the global hunger epidemic. It wasn't until year 3 that the HU team took a pay check! (Now that's dedication). Due to the financial state of the business, nearly every product designed early on was recycled. "Admittedly, our products during the beginning stages of our company weren't the greatest" states HU co-founder, Christian Black. "We are so thankful for the people that have supported us since the beginning. When we first started, no one was buying our products because they thought they were cool. They were buying into our mission to fight world hunger and that's what propelled us to where we are today."
