Record rainfall and flooding in Texas wasn't enough to stop a local Pizza Hut from providing food to families trapped in their homes by Hurricane Harvey.

Shayda Habib, regional manager of a Pizza hut in Sugarland, mobilized a small crew on Tuesday and made dozens of pies to bring to families, according to NBC Houston affiliate KPRC.

"When I heard there were families in need, I knew we needed to act fast," Habib told the station. "I called my husband and asked him to gather up kayaks and meet me at the restaurant."

Habib and her team stacked delivery pouches into their kayaks and paddled through chest-high waters to deliver the pies, according to KCRA, an NBC affiliate in Sacramento, California.

"We packed 120 pizzas into kayaks and took them out to people in their homes," Habib told KCRA. "The people in the houses didn't expect us to come. It was so nice to see their smiles after so much gloom."

Habib told KCRA she plans to continue delivering pizza until the store runs out of food.
