Anza residents who follow social media have been privy to some community news since February 2021: a free food giveaway with fare arriving in huge trailers and emptied by volunteers. Bettina Geissler, along with Victor and Christy Foster, have arranged for large loads of varied types of food to be collected and distributed to anyone in need in the Anza Valley. “Louis Ipolito put us in contact with a food distributor,” Christy Foster said. “We get big loads.
