It's that time of year again! Let's 'Can the Griz' for the 14th time in the last 15yrs! This year marks the 16th annual Can the Griz Food Drive, an off-field competition between Montana State University and the University of Montana to see which community can collect the most donations for their local food banks. We have won every time but once. So help us continue the tradition of winning this year!

This friendly competition takes place on Saturday, November 7th through Saturday, November 21st at the Bobcat/Griz game, and ends at half-time. Last year the Gallatin Valley donated over 171,000 pounds of food plus nearly $75,000 in money to the Gallatin Valley Food Bank during Can the Grizz. Let's try to do even better this year!
