By Olio Exchange Limited
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
**One of Apple's 'Best New Apps'. Featured by the BBC, Guardian, Wired, Time Out, Gizmodo, and The Sunday Times**
Connect with neighbours and local shops so that surplus food can be shared, not thrown away. For your convenience, OLIO can also be used for unwanted non-food household items, too.
Whether you’re a household or business, adding food and other items 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.
Just browse what is available near you (most of it is free or heavily discounted), request anything that take your fancy and message to arrange a pick-up. It’s as easy as that.
Examples of items shared on OLIO include fresh homegrown veg from gardens, artisan bread from local bakeries, over catering from events, and many other home and kitchen items, too.
If you love food, hate waste, care about the environment or want to connect with your community, OLIO is for you. Download today to join The Food Sharing Revolution.
Other features include:
+ DISTANCE – see how near each item is to you
+ NOTIFICATIONS – get notifications when you receive a message from another user or when new food near you is added to the app
+ CONTROL – decide whether you want the pick-up to be at your home, at one of our convenient drop box locations, or in a public place. You choose when and to whom you disclose your address
+ MY OLIO – see any items you have added or requested, and access the messages for these items
+ SHARE – OLIO will work better the more people who use it. So please share on Facebook and Twitter, or use our refer a friend feature
Food can currently be added/requested anywhere in the world, so please install today!
