The Yankees are set to host their 19th annual Yankee Holiday Food Drive, presented by White Rose Foods, on Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m at Yankee Stadium.

Mariano Rivera will be present collecting nonperishable food from 11:30 a.m. to noon.

Fans are being asked to bring nonperishable food items to Gate 2 of the stadium. Anyone who donates 30 pounds or more of nonperishable food items (rice and bottled water will not be accepted) will be rewarded. Fans who reach the 30-pound mark will receive either two vouchers for grandstand or bleacher tickets, or half-price tickets in selected areas to one of 19 designated games for the 2013 season.
