The 14th annual Can the Cats Food Drive is almost over. Hurry and bring in your donations, we would hate for the Cats to be victorious again this year!  For those of you not from Montana, the Can the Cats is a food drive that pits Missoula and Bozeman against one another in a friendly competition that takes place alongside the Cat-Griz football game. This years event kicked off November 9, and all money and donated food will be given to the Missoula Food Bank.

The collection deadline is the first quarter of the Cat-Griz game on November 23. If you can’t make it to Bozeman, attend the Rally in the Valley at Caras Park and watch the game on the big screen. The winner of the food drive will be announced during halftime.

The contest is based on the weight of food donations, so heavier items such as beans, rice, and canned goods go further to helping the Griz Can the Cats!
