The Cisco Food Pantry had a wonderful 2009. People have been generous with their time and their money. We have always had good volunteers to help on distribution days,many who have given food items, many who have given money so that we always have our shelves stocked and some have shared fresh produce from their gardens. There is no way we can know everyone who contributes to the CFP—those who give to the food drives and those who put in the drop containers at the churches and at the Civic League meetings, etc.
