Though we are a little behind last year's pace, there is still plenty of time to catch up and Can the Griz with the annual food drive fundraiser.
To date, we have collected just over 2,200 lbs of food. Program Director for the Gallatin Valley Food Bank, Lori Christenson, says that while we are behind where we were last year at this time, the majority of the food for comes in during the last few days of the competition.
"The amount of food that we collected last year was tremendous. We collected over 57,000 lbs of food. And by 4 months later, we had already gone through all that food, so we distribute a lot of food out of here, roughly 5-thousand pounds of food a day," says Christenson.
The food drive runs right up to kickoff of the Cat Griz football game on Saturday. The Bobcats have won the annual competition 11 out of the last 12 years. Find a complete list of drop off locations below.
