A collective effort by millions of students, parents, teachers and school administrators, Pasta for Pennies has raised more than $42 million since its inception, funding research and services for leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma patients and their families. In 2008 alone, the grassroots campaign raised a record $5.8 million in student contributions.

Students participate in Pasta for Pennies during a three-week period in the school year by donating their spare change, filling collection jars in their classrooms. Local Olive Garden restaurant teams reward the top fundraising class in each school with a pasta party.

Olive Garden also hosts kick-off lunches in its local restaurants for representatives of schools participating in the Pasta for Pennies program and provides marketing support and materials for 43 participating LLS chapters nationally.
