He Bought An Endless Pasta Pass From Olive Garden, But Not For The Reason You Think
Practice random acts of pasta.
When Olive Garden released its "Never Ending Pasta Pass" in September, many people just shook their heads in disbelief.
How could anyone stomach all-you-can-eat Olive Garden pasta for seven weeks?
But for one Utah man, the "Never Ending Pasta Pass" turned into an opportunity to give back to those in his community.
Over the course of a month and a half, Matt Tribe used his Olive Garden promotion to order takeout (fettuccine Alfredo with chicken, salad, breadsticks, and a Diet Coke), which he would then hand out to friends, strangers, and the homeless.
"I thought, I can't eat that much pasta," Tribe said. "What better way to get use out of the pasta pass than to do random acts of pasta."
By the end of the seven weeks, Tribe (and his sister when he was out of town) visited 11 Olive Garden restaurants and distributed 125 meals.
Why did he do it?
"When someone shows up at your house with free Olive Garden, they're happy," he said. "No one is mad about that, especially the homeless people."
In recognition of his good deeds, it's only fitting that Tribe be named an honorary Pastafarian.
