We canned the Griz last year, and we're going to do it again this year! The 20th Annual Can the Griz food drive is Saturday, November 9th thru Saturday November 23rd. It's our annual off-field competition between Montana State University and the University of Montana to see which school can collect the most donations for its local county food bank leading up the annual Cat-Griz footbal game.

Last year was a record year for Can the Griz here in Bozeman (and Missoula, too)!


Montana State - 448,720 Cash/Pounds

Missoula - 404,849 Cash/Pounds

Here's how the XL Nation can help us Can the Griz this year:

  • Join Dave & Ally at their annual 12-hour Can the Griz Food Drive at Town & Country Foods on 19th Ave, Friday, November 15, 2019, from 6 a.m. - 6 p.m.
  • Look for and drop off non-perishable food items at collection bins at most supermarkets throughout the Gallatin Valley. Here's a complete list of collection locations.
  • Bring your cans of food to the Cat-Griz football games on November 23rd. The MSU Office of Student Engagement will be with us to collect donations and non-perishable food items.

If you would like additional information, or to host a collection box, please contact the MSU Office of Student Engagement at 994-2933 or email canthegriz@montana.edu.

The winner of the Can the Griz competition will be announced during the Cat-Griz game in Bozeman Saturday, November 23rd.. Come on, let's Can the Griz! The Bobcats have successfully canned the Griz 15 of 18 years this competition has taken place.
