Can the Cats Food Drive

November 14, 2019

For two decades, the Missoula Food Bank has competed with the Bozeman Food Bank to see which can collect the most food in the Can the Cats, Can the Griz food drive during the Brawl of the Wild. This year’s food drive will benefit the food bank as well as the new UM Food Pantry. Bozeman has won for the last sixteen years, but events director Amanda Ceaser says Missoula will crush the competition this year.

“This is really a food drive where the whole town gets involved. It’s this fun competition where like, the football scene and the Griz scene and the giving scene of like, food bank donors all get to come together for one big, big competition,” says Ceaser.

Last year Missoula collected four hundred four thousand pounds of food while Bozeman collected roughly forty thousand pounds more. Can the Cats will end on Saturday, November 23 at the Brawl of the Wild.
