COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Olive Garden is known for their unlimited salad and breadsticks.
But, to Still Creek Ranch in the Brazos Valley, they are known as a blessing.
Over 800 Olive Garden restaurants participate globally in the "Harvest Program." A program that takes food that was cooked but not served, and donates it back into the community.
The Olive Garden in College Station donates their food every Wednesday morning to Still Creek Ranch.
"It's a win-win," said Olive Garden general manager, David Wells. "We take care of food that hasn't been used or served and take care of a global issue."
From pasta and meat sauces, to full meals like Lasagna and Chicken Alfredo, Wells said it's about bringing attention to a bigger issue.
"We want to get the word out that there is a food shortage and we want to do our part," he said.
Since the program started in College Station over forty-thousand pounds of food have been donated.
