The 13th annual Can the Griz Food Drive, an off-field competition between Montana State University and the University of Montana to see which school can collect the most donations for their local county food banks, begins Nov. 3.

The competition ends on Nov. 17 at the conclusion of the first quarter of the Brawl of the Wild football game between MSU and U of M, this year at the University of Montana. The winner of the competition will be announced during the third quarter.

Organizers of the drive ask that nonperishable food donations be taken to collection locations throughout Bozeman to support those in need in Gallatin County. A list of participating locations can be found at http://www.montana.edu/engagement/programs/can-the-griz.

Bobcat supporters can designate their contribution to MSU by telling the Gallatin Valley Food Bank or collection location host that their donation is for the Can the Griz Food Drive. Donations can also be made online at www.gallatinvalleyfoodbank.org.

For more information, or to host a collection box, please contact Joe Webster at 994-7571, or send an email to joseph.webster@msu.montana.edu.

Can the Griz is coordinated by the MSU Office of Activities and Engagement and Gallatin Valley Food Bank.
