What is OLIO and how do I use it?

OLIO connects neighbors with each other and with local shops so surplus food and other items can be shared, not thrown away. OLIO has a specific Made section for items that can be sold. Any items offered outside this section must be offered for free and any attempt to sell items should be immediately reported.

If you're just getting started, you'll need to know the basics: How to add and request items.

How to add an item: Click on the red + button on either the Food or Non-Food section

How to request an item:
Browse through items in the Food or Non-Food section. It lists items closest to you so if something is far away, there may not be any items listed near you. Click on an item and then click the red "Request This Listing" button
