Building a Better Community Since 2007

Can The Griz

This year marks the 18th annual Can the Griz/Can the Bobcats Food Drive, an off-field competition between MSU and the University of Montana to see which community can collect the most donations for their local food banks. This friendly competition takes place on Saturday, November 4th through Saturday, November 18th at the Bobcat/Griz game, and ends at half-time.

Last year, MSU and the Bozeman community donated a record 194,750 pounds of food plus approximately $65,523 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 totaled 196,406 pounds of food plus $85,227. We challenge the Bozeman community to help us get back on a winning streak!

Can the Griz is coordinated by the MSU Office of Student Engagement and the Gallatin Valley Food Bank.
