Join the Food Sharing App

Olio is an app for sharing food, helping people pick up unwanted food and also people looking to offer free food of their own. If you hate waste as much as we do then it’s a must-have app.

Simply sign up and you’ll see free food for collection in your area, some may come from businesses, others from families. Upload photos of unwanted food you may have also and keep the whole thing moving along. With over 17 million portions shared and 3 million users, there’s no better time to start sharing.

Yellow Sticker Discount Hour

We’re used to seeing them on the shelves at supermarkets, the famous yellow sticker discounts. You’ll start to realise that these discounts start at the same time most days. 7-8pm is the best time in my local store, but head down to yours at various times in the evening to get the best discounts.


However, discounts don’t just apply to supermarkets. Coffee shops and other food retailers do amazing deals shortly before close, our personal favourite is Starbucks. An hour before close you can get 50% off food items with 100% of proceeds going to charity.
