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

In 2005, Chef Alvin Harvey traveled to Louisiana with a group of volunteers to help feed the needy in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. His generosity extended beyond Jacksonville, as he was well-known for his giving spirit and often spoke about the importance of empathy and understanding.

Harvey’s legacy will live on through the lives he touched and the meals he served to those in need. Last November, he prepared to give away 500 free Thanksgiving turkeys and all the fixings in the Brentwood neighborhood. His impact on the community was significant, as he was loved for his giving spirit and generosity.

On Wednesday, March 27 at Julington Baptist Church on Snyder Street, just north of Bartram Springs, there will be a funeral service for Chef Alvin Harvey. He is survived by his wife Nancy, two daughters, and two sons. The passing of Harvey is a loss to the community, but his memory will live on through those who were touched by his kindness and generosity.
