Pizza, as it turned out, is not only fast food, which we order, when we are too lazy to cook or for a noisy party for many people. Sometimes companies deliver pizza to people who simply need hot food, such as those affected by Hurricane Harvey in Houston, Texas.
Workers of the regional Pizza Hut, led by the manager Shayda Habib, organized a group of people with kayaks, providing pizza to those who needed it most. The “fleet” of six people made their way through the flooded streets of the city and the rain to deliver pizza to people who were stuck in their homes because of the hurricane and practically devastated their food supplies.
“We packed 120 pizzas into kayaks and took them out to people in their homes,” Habib said.”The people in the houses didn’t expect us to come. It was so nice to see their smiles after so much gloom.”
Habib said she plans to continue delivering pizza until the store runs out of food.
Hurricane Harvey hit Houston, Texas on September 2 and was recognized as one of the most powerful hurricanes since the days of Wilma in 2005. Within four days, more than 1000 mm of rain fell, which led to catastrophic floods. As a result of flooding, hundreds of thousands of houses were affected, and over 30,000 people were left homeless.
