MISSOULA – On Tuesday, July 4, all on-duty first responders who work in Missoula are invited to a free barbecue at The Iron Griz, located at the University of Montana Golf Course.

The salute to first responders will be held from noon to 3 p.m. The free event includes Montana-raised Waygu burgers and Redneck hot dogs. The event will be staffed by volunteers from UM Dining and their families. The food has been donated by area food producers.

 “We wanted to say a special thank you for their hard work and bravery,” said Camp Howard, director of UM Dining.

The Iron Griz, a UM Dining restaurant, is the winner of three international awards for collegiate retail dining concepts. Opened in 2015, the restaurant boasts a menu that features locally sourced food, including produce grown in the 1/3-acre garden in front of the restaurant.
