BOZEMAN -- The Montana State University community will again compete with the University of Montana community to see who can collect the most food for its local food bank.

The 10th annual "Can the Griz" food drive will begin Saturday, Nov. 7, with the winning campus announced during half-time of the Cat/Griz football game on Saturday, Nov. 21. Anyone supporting the MSU Bobcats can drop off non-perishable food items to marked bins around the MSU campus and around Bozeman. They can also bring food directly to the Food Bank at 602 Bond in east Bozeman, but should specify that it is for the "Can the Griz" food drive.

The MSU Office for Community Involvement is organizing the competition. Last year, the Bobcats collected more than 11,000 pounds of food. The Griz collected almost 2,000 pounds.
