Editors' Notes

As kids we were taught to eat our veggies so they didn’t go to waste, yet as adults we’re often desensitized to the amount of unspoiled sustenance discarded worldwide every day. Olio helps find a home for unwanted edibles, using local postings that are a snap to create or browse. Whether a nearby farm is getting rid of excess rhubarb (it makes great pies, honest) or we’re going on holiday and want the chorizo meatballs in our fridge to end up on a neighbor’s plate instead of in the trash, Olio is a feel-good way to reduce food waste.

Love the app

I wish the app was there when I went through my own rough time. I love that I can help, waste less food and here and then pick up things people don’t want/like too, helping to minimise waste further. Great excuse to do a little more walking too!
App itself is simple and easy to use (once you figure out how the top three buttons work lol). I really recommend it to any socially and planet conscious people!
And yes, it is for anyone :)

Not the godsend i prayed for.

Mark in Colchester

When i saw this on tv, i was overjoyed, because thanks to ATOS, i’ve been eating 4 slices of bread and marge and drinking tap water for months and swapping the contents of my house for food and this could give me a chance to eat, and help stop £20 billion in food getting binned.
Unfortunately, there are hundreds of people in Colchester in my situation, and few people giving food away, but i live in hope.
