The 14th 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 this Saturday, November 9. Details here:

The competition ends on November 23 at halftime of the 'Brawl of the Wild' football game between MSU and UM, which this year will be held in Bozeman. The winner of the competition will be announced during halftime.

Organizers of the drive ask that non-perishable food donations be taken to collection locations throughout Bozeman to support those in need in Gallatin County. Drop off locations include The Leaf and Bean, Albertsons, Rosauers, North Hedges, MSU Bookstore and many more locations shown here on the full list of participating locations. And don't forget about the 967 Minutes of Caring in which our sister station attempts to raise as much food as possible in 967 minutes at Safeway in Bozeman on November 15.

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 gallatinvalleyfoodbank.org. Monetary donations may be made directly to the Gallatin Valley Food Bank by texting CANS to 91011.
