Volunteers deliver excess food to key workers in Guernsey

Volunteers have been delivering excess food to key workers in Guernsey.

Users of the Olio food-sharing app have been picking up food from local businesses on the island which would otherwise have been thrown away, and delivering it to frontline staff and residential homes.

The app connects individuals with businesses, which have food that may have passed its best before date but is still safe to eat.

Thousands of eggs which were originally destined for restaurants were delivered to parishes across the island over the bank holiday weekend.

Everything is different, everything is up in the air, nobody knows where anything's coming from at the moment all a bit unsure. So anything we can do to help out is greatly appreciated.
