One way to reduce the amount of food you’re throwing away is to share it with people in your neighbourhood – and a new smartphone app promises to help you do just that.
The Olio App connects neighbours with each other and with local independent shops to share their surplus food. This could include food nearing its sell-by-date from shops, cafes and markets, spare vegetables from an allotment, cakes from a baker or groceries from household fridges.
How does it work?
Once you’ve downloaded the app, simply take a picture of the items and add them to OLIO for a neighbour to collect, be it from home, the store, an OLIO Drop Box, or another agreed location.
