Can the Griz Food Drive
November 18, 2020
An event every day that begins at 12:00am, repeating until November 20, 2020
Brawl of the Wild on hold, but ‘Can the Griz’ marches on!
The Can the Griz Food Drive is back in 2020 with its 21st annual event. The friendly off-field competition between Montana State University and the University of Montana, along with their communities, is put on every year to see who can collect the most donations for their local food banks. Beginning Friday, November 6th, the competition runs through Friday, November 20th at 7:30pm.
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 UM and Missoula community also raised a record amount, a grand total of 421,859 in pounds and money for the Missoula Food Bank. All of the Gallatin Valley food collected remains in the area and is used to support our friends, neighbors, and our kids’ classmates.
Can the Griz organizers ask that nonperishable food donations be dropped off at collection locations throughout Bozeman to support those Gallatin County residents in need. A complete list of donation sites can be found at www.canthegriz.com.
Monetary donations can also be made directly to the Gallatin Valley Food Bank by visiting the aforementioned website and clicking “donate.” For every dollar donated, 1 pound of food will be added to the final tally.
Finally, participants are invited to promote the drive on social media by posting a picture of themselves donating along with the hashtag #CanTheGriz.
Can the Griz is coordinated by the MSU Office of Student Engagement and the Gallatin Valley Food Bank. Call (406) 994-2933 or email email@example.com for further information. Go ‘Cats Go! •
