How much do you REALLY love pasta? More pasta lovers than ever before have the chance to snag a coveted Olive Garden Never Ending Pasta Pass on Sept. 15. To celebrate the 21st anniversary of its fan-favorite promotion—Never Ending Pasta Bowl—Olive Garden is selling up to 21,000 passes for one hour this year.
Last year, 2,000 Never Ending Pasta Passes were claimed in less than one minute, so Olive Garden is giving more guests the opportunity to get an all-access pass to enjoy seven weeks of Never Ending Pasta Bowl. Beginning Thursday, Sept. 15 at 2 p.m. ET, up to 21,000 passes will be available for one hour exclusively via www.OliveGarden.com/PastaPass for $100 per pass.
For seven weeks, from Oct. 3 through Nov. 20, every Pasta Pass holder dining at Olive Garden will have access to unlimited pasta, homemade sauces, pasta toppings, soup or salad, breadsticks and Coca-Cola® soft drinks. This year, the most popular Olive Garden entrée, Chicken Alfredo, is being introduced as part of the Never Ending Pasta Bowl lineup. Guests without a Pasta Pass can take part in Never Ending Pasta Bowl and enjoy unlimited pasta starting at $9.99 throughout the seven-week promotion starting Oct. 3.
In partnership with Feeding America®, after the online sale is complete, Olive Garden will be auctioning additional Pasta Passes on eBay. Olive Garden will donate 100 percent of all proceeds from the auction to Feeding America, with a minimum guaranteed donation of $21,000, to fight hunger in local communities. Guests can join the conversation with #PastaPass and connect with Olive Garden at Facebook.com/OliveGarden, Twitter.com/OliveGarden and Instagram.com/OliveGarden.
