►WELCOME TO OLIO◄
Connect with your neighbours and local shops so that surplus food, and other household items can be shared, not thrown away. Everything on OLIO is available for free or for donation.
►HOW IT WORKS◄
○ Adding things to OLIO is easy. Simply snap a photo of your item, 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, request anything that takes your fancy and message to arrange a pick-up. It’s as easy as that.
►EXAMPLE OF THINGS SHARED◄
Food items shared on OLIO include fresh homegrown veg from gardens, bread from local bakeries, and unwanted food when starting a diet, moving house or going on holiday. Other household items shared on OLIO include toiletries, cleaning products, clothes, furniture, toys and kitchen gadgets.

Fantastic way to make a real difference
Have been using this app for a little over a year now, have both given away food and collected food. So easy to connect with people that you would normally never even speak to!
Easy to use, amazing connections to community & reducing waste
An amazing app to connect to our local community to share surplus goods (mainly food).
I have had over a year of good, intuitive experience using the app, and it keeps growing!
Try it you'll like it.
