Renowned chef from Jacksonville who donated 500 turkeys passes away at 72

Jacksonville Chef Alvin Harvey, known for serving hundreds of people meals for Thanksgiving, has passed away at the age of 72. His legacy of generosity and kindness will live on through the lives he touched and the meals he served to those in need.

Last November, Harvey was preparing to give away 500 free Thanksgiving turkeys and all the fixings in the Brentwood neighborhood. His generosity was well-known in the community, and he was loved for his giving spirit. In 2005, he traveled to Louisiana with a group to feed the needy in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, extending his impact beyond Jacksonville.

Chef Harvey believed in helping others and often spoke about the importance of empathy and understanding. He once said, “If I reach down to pull you up I want to feel your pain because we are all just one paycheck away from being homeless.” Harvey is survived by his wife Nancy, two daughters, and two sons.

His funeral service will be held on Wednesday, March 27 at Julington Baptist Church on Snyder Street, just north of Bartram Springs. The community is mourning the loss of this beloved chef who dedicated his life to helping others.
