Jacksonville Chef Alvin Harvey, known for serving hundreds of people meals for Thanksgiving, has passed away at the age of 72. His memory 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. His impact extended beyond Jacksonville, as in 2005 he traveled to Louisiana with a group to feed the needy in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

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.” He is survived by his wife Nancy, two daughters, and two sons.

The passing of Chef Alvin Harvey is a loss to the community, as he leaves behind a legacy of generosity and kindness. It is a testament to his character that he spent his life helping others without expecting anything in return. His selflessness will be sorely missed but never forgotten.
