Can the Griz!!!
- Friday, November 6, 2020 to Friday, November 20, 2020, from 7:30am to 7:30pm
ABOUT CAN THE GRIZ2020 marks the 21st year of the Can the Griz Food Drive. This food drive is a friendly, off-field competition between Montana State University and the University of Montana to see which school can collect the most donations for their local food bank. The competition begins Friday, November 6th and ends Friday, November 20th at 7:30pm. The winner of the competition will be announced that evening. Can the Griz proceeds go to the Gallatin Valley Food Bank and benefits Bounty of the Bridgers campus food pantry. The Bobcats have successfully canned the Griz 17 of 20 years!
Last year, MSU and the Bozeman community donated 230,096 pounds of food plus a record $206,550 to the Gallatin Valley Food Bank. The University of Montana and Missoula community also raised a record amount for the Missoula community's local food bank. Donations from UM and the Missoula community had a grand total of 421,859 (pounds and money). We challenge the Bozeman community to help us beat the Griz this year!
Here are some ways you can donate:
- Please bring nonperishable food donations to collection locations throughout Bozeman to support those in need in Gallatin County. A list of participating locations can be found HERE!
- Monetary donations may be made directly to the Gallatin Valley Food Bank. Each dollar donated counts as 1 pound of food!
- 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.
Can the Griz is coordinated by the MSU Office of Student Engagement and the Gallatin Valley Food Bank.
