From November 6th to November 16th, history teacher and club sponsor of Interact at Mast Academy at Homestead High School, Michael Gustin, held a canned food drive that collected almost 950 cans for an organization called Farm Share.

Farm Share is a South Florida based organization that provides thousands of low income families with nutritious and fresh foods.

The organization's mission is to provide free food for hungry families across the state of Florida. They accomplish this by taking donations from

regular everyday citizens like you and me!

Farm Share also receives donations from large local farms to ensure every family has fresh foods.

Mr.Gustin and his Interact club, which is founded on the idea of helping the community by holding drives to collect and donate to those in need. Interact has done this drive for several years and each year they get incredible results.

This year Mr.Gustin says that in the short amount of time that they held the drive he was impressed by the amount of cans they received. Additionally, for their hard work, Interact at MAST placed 3rd in regionals for the total amount of cans received.

Mr.Gustin is thankful to all the students who donated cans and his

fellow teachers at MAST that sponsored this event.

For the upcoming year, Interact and Mr.Gustin are already eager to hold the Farm Share drive again if possible.
