We have already heard about dozens of relief efforts in the wake of Hurricane Harvey – but this story sets a new bar for “pieing-it-forward”.

A Pizza Hut restaurant in Sugar Land, Texas paddled into their local neighborhoods earlier this week so they could make special deliveries to Texans trapped by the floodwaters.

The manager of the Pizza Hut restaurant, Shayda Willison, says that when she learned about members of the community who were trapped in their homes and running out of food, she asked the staff to start baking pies at full speed.

A team of volunteers then gathered several kayaks and loaded them high with over 120 pizzas.

“They were so happy to see us coming down their street,” Willison told FOX 4. “You never let your family go hungry.”

Other Hurricane Harvey relief efforts have included a Chick-Fil-A manager dispatching a rescue boat to help an elderly couple; a reporter being given a 6-pack of beer as a thank you for his coverage; a furniture store opening its doors to flood victims; and another reporter rushing to the rescue of a truck driver trapped in floodwaters.
