OLIO is a free app connecting people with their neighbours and with local shops so surplus food and other items can be shared, not thrown away.
Do you work with any like-minded organisations or businesses? Ask your partners to share OLIO with their own audiences. Leverage your professional network to spread the word.
Tap into local business networks and ask them to display OLIO flyers or to become part of our Food Waste Hero programme where our volunteers will pick up surplus food at the end of the day to distribute on the app.
Here’s an overview to provide to businesses explaining why they should work with OLIO and why they should become zero food waste.
Get in touch with local press and shout about all the good work you’re doing with OLIO to stop food waste and bring neighbours together. Here’s an editable press release you can use and here’s an example of a press release from South Derbyshire.
We have over 200,000 users and we’re sure they’d love to hear about new food sharing initiatives in their areas, so please get in touch and let us know what you are up to.
Growing a food sharing network doesn’t happen over night (unfortunately!) so make sure to repeat the suggestions above over and over again and shout about new partnerships, volunteer successes, milestones hit etc.
