Food and essentials

Volunteer at a foodbank

Food sharing

  • Share surplus food with your neighbours instead of throwing it away by signing up to Olio, a free food sharing app.
  • On it, you can give away food for free to local people - whether it is groceries from your fridge, foods about to go off or spare home-grown vegetables. This way you can help those who might not have a lot of money for food, whilst also helping the environment by cutting down on your food waste.

Give away unused items

  • Do you have unwanted household items you want to give away for free to someone who needs it in your community?
  • Online community groups such as FreeCycleand Freegle connect local people who can donate for free - everything from sofas and fridges to baby buggies and DVDs.
