can the griz

This year marks the 15th annual Can the Griz/Can the Bobcats Food Drive, an off-field competition between MSU and theUniversity of Montana to see which community can collect the most donations for their local food banks. This friendly competition takes place on Saturday, November 8 through Saturday, November 22 at the Bobcat/Griz game,and ends at half-time.

In 2013, MSU and the Bozeman area community donated 100,937 pounds of food plus approximately $47,445.38 to the Gallatin Valley Food Bank. Combined, that's a RECORD donation for the food bank and is the equivalent of 130,590.36 pounds of food! All of the food collected at Can the Griz remains in the Gallatin Valley and is used to support our friends, our neighbors, and our children’s classmates.
