OLIO connects neighbours with each other and with local businesses so surplus food can be shared, not thrown away.
The food available through Olio could be food nearing its sell-by date in local stores, spare home-grown vegetables, or the groceries in your fridge when you go away. In addition, OLIO can also be used for non-food household items too.
OLIO is very straightforward to use. To make an item available, simply open the app, add a photo, description, and note when and where the item is available for pick-up.
Simply browse the listings available near you, request whatever you’re interested in and arrange a pick-up via private messaging.
A great concept with a huge potential, benefitting not only those receiving the produce, but ultimately the environment too.
