Pasta for Pennies


Started in 1994, Olive Garden’s Pasta for Pennies is a national grassroots fundraising campaign that benefits The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). From January through May, students across the country bring spare change to their classrooms. The class in each school that raises the most money receives a pasta party in their classroom, served by a manager and team members of their local Olive Garden.

Each January, local Olive Garden restaurants host kick-off lunches for representatives of participating schools, and provide marketing support and materials to more than 40 of LLS chapters across the country. Since its inception, Pasta for Pennies has raised more than $53 million for LLS to fight leukemia, lymphoma and other blood-related cancers, and provide services to patients and their families.
