It's that time of year again, time to Can the Griz! This will be the 20th annual Can the Griz/Can the Bobcats Food Drive, a friendly competition with our Missoula neighbors to see who can collect the most donations for their local food bank. Each year, two weeks before the Brawl of the Wild both communities gather donations to see who can get the most with the winner announced at half-time. Bozeman has won 16 of the 19 years, last year being a record year of 263,263pounds of food plus $185,457! There are several ways you can participate in Canning the Griz this year! The easiest of course being, to donate food.
