Here we go again! CAN THE CATS is back, the annual food drive that pits UM and Missoula against MSU and Bozeman to see who can raise the most money for their town's respective food banks. It's the 20th anniversary of the food drive, and this year, Missoula's gonna win. We're gonna make sure of it.

All donations collected in the Missoula area during this two-week food drive competition stay local and help stock the shelves at Missoula Food Bank & Community Center.

We're teaming with all Missoula Albertson's locations to hold a 12-Hour Food Drive on Friday, November 15th.  You can make food and monetary donations from 7 a.m to 7 p.m. at ANY Albertson's store.

We'll have DJs from ZOO FM and all of our sister stations throughout the day at all of those Albertson's locations - you can stop by the location at Northgate on North Reserve from 12pm to 3pm to see ZOO's own Mike Smith broadcasting live.

Information from the Facebook event page is below.

Donate non-perishable food or cash donations at any Missoula Albertson's location on Friday, Nov. 15th for a FULL DAY FOOD DRIVE from 7am - 7pm with our friends and radio personalities from Townsquare Media!

Help our Missoula community win the Can the Cats Canned Food Drive and nourish families and individuals through our local Food Bank during this full day live broadcast!

$1 of every 1/2 gallon and gallon of milk bought at our local Albertson's during the Can the Cats Canned Food Drive (11/9-23) will be donated to our local Food Bank for this fun, off-field food drive competition!

Anyone who donates at a Can the Cats Grocery Store Food Drive may be entered into a drawing for one of many local prizes! 4 passes to Big Sky Breakout, 100 lbs of local & organic storage vegetables, a gift certificate for the Gibson Mansion, a signed GRIZ jersey, and so much more! Raffle prizes will be drawn the afternoon of Friday, Nov. 22nd.

Thank you to all our local Albertson's, Townsquare Media, Dairy Farmer's of Montana, and Dairygold!
