ORLANDO, Fla. --- Olive Garden is offering a pre-pay arrangement valid at any of its locations for Adventists that would like to dine between Friday and Saturday sundown.
The move will allow Adventists to avoid the exchange of cash and still be able to enjoy unlimited bread sticks at their favorite pseudo-Italian joint on Sabbath.
The restaurant chain released a statement inviting Adventists to set up a pre-paid Sabbath meal account that would work "just like a meal plan at an Adventist college."
The costs of the meal will simply be deducted from the pre-established fund making it easy to never to have to pay for another Olive Garden meal after church.
In the rare event that diners exceed the amount in their Sabbath account, they will be directed to the kitchen where they can do "voluntary potluck-style cleanup" to work off their debt.
