OLIO - The Food Sharing Revolution Description
It’s a nice idea but the transaction costs are too high to make it work. This needs a very efficient infrastructure for couriering to make it worthwhile to collect something worth pennies. Looking at the app I see a 2 mile trip for half a tub of butter. Who would do that except for the truly desperate? Even if you were say a poor single parent you might have to walk 10 miles to collect enough food for a dinner. Taking the bus would eradicate your profit, not to mention the time lost. Here we provide OLIO – The Food Sharing Revolution V 1.2604 for Android 4.1++ **Featured by the BBC, Guardian, Wired, Time Out, Gizmodo, and The Sunday Times**

I love the concept and the app. I got some items from here not far from me. I am now collecting from a shop but I found that not many people responded to get the items. Fortunately I was able to give all between the people who responded but I am wondering if it will be more difficult as I will collect the items every week... I am sharing the app in my social media groups to help it grow but not sure if it will work
