Food waste is on the rise all over the world, but a free phone app is working to eliminate that waste one post at a time. It's called "Olio."

Anyone who has food they're not going to eat can take pictures of it,
upload it, and it immediately alerts people nearby that delicious food is available.

The app allows you to claim the free food and arrange a time and place for pickup.

Olio is financed by investors, and right now, the company is looking for ways to become profitable.
