Being a Food Waste Hero for Booker
Why are Food Waste Heroes collecting surplus food from Booker?
Booker is working with local charities to distribute as much of their surplus food as possible, however, there are some branches where no local charity is available to collect any surplus food. Booker and OLIO have therefore partnered so that OLIO Food Waste Heroes can come to the rescue and ensure that as much good food as possible gets saved from the bin!
Why is the food not going to charities?
In some areas and branches, there are no charities available, or the charities cannot collect on every day of the week. To avoid the food going to waste, OLIO Food Waste Heroes come to the rescue and collect the surplus food instead. Whenever a charity is able to take on collection days currently assigned to OLIO, they will take precedence and replace OLIO. If this happens to a Food Waste Hero’s slot, they will be notified immediately in their group chat.
