Remembering Tony Adlerbert, a Founder of Feed the Hungry San Miguel
All of us at Feed the Hungry, as well as the thousands of San Miguel de Allende residents helped by Tony’s generosity, mourn his passing. His legacy lives on, as his vision more than 30 years ago became the foundation of Feed the Hungry San Miguel’s hot meals program in rural school kitchens.
