On Shredder Day,  April 15th from 7 A.M. - 7 P.M. Channel 4 will hold a food drive for Second Harvest North Florida.  Viewers are asked to bring non-perishable food to the station when they bring their personal items to be shredded. You can donate peanut butter, baby food, boxes of pasta/macaroni, canned meat, canned fruit and vegetables, soup, rice, dry beans, cereal, etc.
