On Wednesday, December 19, between 9:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. at Gate 2 at Yankee Stadium (corner of 164th Street and Jerome Avenue), any fan bringing at least 30 pounds of non-perishable food will receive a voucher good for two (2) complimentary tickets in designated seating areas to select 2019 Yankees regular season home games.*

The Yankees, in conjunction with the Bronx clergy, will distribute all food collected to families in need throughout the Bronx. In addition, the Yankees will donate approximately 2,500 food vouchers to the recipients of the collected food items.
To help kick off the Food Drive, the Yankees have already received a committed donation in excess of 70,000 pounds of food from Krasdale Foods.
