Harvest Food Donation Program
Olive Garden is committed to making a difference in the lives of others in the local community. One of the ways we do that is through our
program. At the end of each day, we freeze and safely store surplus food items for our local community food banks to pick up and supply to those in need.
Since its inception, and with support of other Olive Garden restaurants in the United State and Canada,
has donated more than 35 million pounds of food with a fair market value in excess of $300 million to local community food banks across the country. This program allows us to help those in need by providing them with delicious, nutritious Italian food.
