Charitable fundraising

Raise money for charity without leaving your home.

OLIO is a simple and powerful platform enabling individuals to fundraise for national and local charities they support.

When adding food or other household items to OLIO users can request a ‘Pay As You Feel’ (PAYF) donation for their items, and select the charity of their choice as the beneficiary.

So far we have partnered with two flagship charities who are both tackling food waste at scale, Feedback and FareShare. Later this year local charities will also be able to easily sign up and we will provide a variety of tools and promotional materials to make it easy to organise a local fundraising campaign such as a virtual bake sale or virtual car boot sale.

In order to cover the expense of our small team and operating costs, a minimum of 10% donated is retained by OLIO. We are eternally grateful for all donations and we will use the funds to help continue tackling household food waste at scale and build food sharing networks around the world.

The charities we’re working with

FareShare

FareShare is a UK-wide charity that tackles food waste and hunger by redistributing good food that might otherwise go to waste, to frontline charities and community groups that support vulnerable people – including homeless shelters, children’s breakfast clubs, older people’s lunch clubs and domestic violence refuges. These organisations transform the food into nutritious meals, which they provide alongside life-changing support.

Last year, FareShare UK redistributed more than 13,000 tonnes of food to over 6,700 charities and community groups, enough to provide 28.6 million meals for people in need.

You can help by making a Pay-As-You-Feel donation to FareShare when using OLIO. For every 25 pence given, we can provide a meal to a vulnerable person. So you can enjoy delicious food through OLIO, while putting an end to food waste and supporting vulnerable people in your community – it’s a win-win-win!

Feedback

Feedback catalyses action globally, working with governments, businesses, NGOs, grassroots organisations and the public to change society’s attitude toward wasting food. We galvanise public action, build movements, influence policy, and research supply chains.

We believe that tackling food waste is a huge and immediate opportunity to reduce the environmental impact and improve the social value of our food system.

We combine bold, high-profile and inspiring public campaigning with hard-hitting research and expertise. We collaborate with organisations who share our agenda to raise the profile of the many delicious solutions to food waste.

With a track record of changing the policies of some of the world’s biggest food companies and reaching out to millions of people through, our innovative campaigning style has helped to elevate food waste from a non-issue several years ago to one now recognised as an urgent international priority.
