**One of Apples Best New Apps. Featured by the BBC, ITV, Evening Standard, Metro, TimeOut and London Live.**Connect with neighbours and local shops so that surplus food can be shared, not thrown away.
Food can currently be added within the UK. However OLIO is rapidly rolling out across the rest of the world, and will launch next in the countries where we have the most downloads, so please install today!
GOT FOOD? Whether you’re a household or business, adding food to OLIO is easy. Simply snap a photo, add a brief description and provide pick-up details. A lovely neighbour will be delighted to take it off your hands.
WANT FOOD? Just browse the food available (most of it is free or heavily discounted), request any items that take your fancy and message to arrange a pick-up. It’s as easy as that.
Examples of food that has been shared via OLIO include fresh veg from local gardens, artisanal bread from farmers’ markets, organic milk and cheese nearing their use-by dates, dried goods from cupboard clear-outs, pots of salsa and guacamole from health-food stores, trays of organic veg from local greengrocers – the list goes on.
If you love food, hate waste, smile at a bargain or care about your community, then OLIO is for you. OLIO is free to use, and currently available within the UK. Download today to join The Food Sharing Revolution.
