Welcome to the OfferUp Community forums @Eriqucha!
How did OU help you receive food for a couple days?
Since OfferUps' TOS prohibit having food posts, how did this come about? Thanks for sharing your story with us! Hope you are in a much better place now. GLTU
There is difference between what is prohibited and what is actually removed from the feed.
In large metro. cities, people often post "free groceries/food" within the free section, which I do NOT personally oppose, as long as there are no conditions tied to it. There are other ads that "ask" for food, but there is no "Wanted" category on the app either.
Like a lot of you, Offerup helped my wife and I get through some of our life's toughest times. You see we used to manage a small shopping center in mountain community. We had a store with a small apartment attached to it. I've been doing construction work for more than forty years and the store was my way to retire. My body is not holding up to well and last June I had my hip replaced. Two days later amidst the center getting some much needed renovations we were evicted. We had no place to go and had to put the store and all of our belongings into storage. We ended up at a friends warehouse selling her things on OU. We've started selling stuff from our store on the app with great success and are starting to get it back together. Who knows where we would be without friends and OU. A good reason to be sure to spread good karma not bad!
@Woodguychris Sorry to hear about your loss. Sounds like you have a good attitude and your bringing it back together. So glad your getting back on your feet. I like to hear OfferUp has been good to you. Glad you shared your story. Thank you.
