Thanks to one quick-thinking Pizza Hut manager, flood victims trapped in their homes during the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey were still able to enjoy a hot meal Wednesday.

Shayda Willison, the manager of a Pizza Hut in Sugar Land, Texas, knew she wanted to do something to help those in her community who were trapped in their homes and running out of food. So she had her crew start cooking pizzas while she picked up the most vital piece to delivery plan: kayaks.

According to KDFW-TV, Willison and her family were able to load up more than 120 fresh, hot pizzas in the kayaks and wade through the murky waters by foot all day to deliver the food to their appreciative neighbors.

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

The national pizza chain commended Willison's selfless actions on their official Twitter account Wednesday afternoon.

Willison told KDFW she will continue cooking and delivering fresh meals to members of the community affected by the hurricane until she runs out of supplies.
