Pasta for Pennies

Olive Garden’s Pasta for Pennies is a national fundraising program in partnership with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and more than three million student participants. Since 1994, the program has raised more than $53 million to support the fight against blood-related cancers, help fund important life-saving initiatives and provide critical services to patients and their families.

  1. How it works

    Each year, schools choose a three-week period when students fill collection jars in their classrooms with spare change. The top fundraising class at each participating school receives a pasta party from their local Olive Garden restaurant.
