This June, we’re setting the Olio community a challenge: help us find 10,000 new Food Waste Heroes to join us on our waste-busting mission!

Our Food Waste Heroes rescue unsold food from businesses to help fight waste, save our planet, and support local communities.

If you sign up to become an Olio volunteer this month, you could be in with a chance of winning some incredible prizes.

Why become a Food Waste Hero?

One third of the food we produce globally is wasted, and yet 800 million people go to bed hungry every night. Closer to home, the cost of living crisis is still affecting so many UK and Irish families, with many struggling to feed themselves.

Volunteering with Olio is the perfect chance to make a real difference in your community. 

Step 1

Sign up to become an Olio Food Waste Hero 💪

Step 2

Complete your Food Waste Hero training. This is made up of 12 modules that will help make sure you go into your first food collection filled with confidence ✅

Step 3

Fill in this quick form by the end of the month to be entered into the prize draw. You’ll need the User ID of the person who referred you, which they can find in the Olio app by clicking on the burger menu in the top right-hand corner, clicking on ‘Account’ and scrolling down to see their User ID. If you win this prize draw, you’ll get a £20 (or 20) Tesco voucher 🤑

Optional… Step 4

Complete your first collection from a local business near you. Fill in this form by the 30th June and you’ll be entered into another prize draw to win one whole month of free groceries, or £500 (500 in Ireland) towards an e-bike 🤑🤑🤑

Sounds pretty good right? So what are you waiting for!? 

P.S. Did we mention you also get to keep 10% of the food you collect?👀
