Tony and Shirley Adlerbert are original founders of Feed the Hungry San Miguel and have been visionary leaders since its inception. For decades, they have contributed their time and their passion for helping others, to ensure the continued success of the organization and its mission.
Tony served as president and executive director from 1994 to 2000 and has since been an active member of the Advisory Board. Shirley served as treasurer, led the volunteers program, and filled many other roles in the organization, including fundraising, purchasing, and recruiting, as well as delivering food to rural communities and serving meals at FTH school kitchens.
After nearly 30 years living in San Miguel de Allende, Mr. and Mrs. Adlerbert have returned to the United States to be closer to family. In recognition of their leadership and dedication to the wellbeing of the children of San Miguel, Feed the Hungry dedicated its headquarters to them.
“Feed the Hungry will always share a large part of our hearts and we are so grateful to have had the opportunity to give back,” said Tony.
The farewell ceremony and unveiling of the building dedication sign took place on May 3. Together with the staff, cooks, board members, and directors, they joined in songs of joy and warm hugs as fond farewells were exchanged.
