Leo Alcantara
Cook/Dad Chef 

I work as a cook 6 days a week and when I'm not working I'm playing with my kids in the pool or watching movies with them. Just being with my family is what makes me happy! 

Leo and his family lost everything during the Maui, Lahaina Fires in August 2023. He and his wife are working hard to get back on their feet. Even though Leo and his wife are working it's difficult to start over with absolutely nothing. If you would like to help Leo and his family, they would really appreciate your love and support.

Anything helps!
