As world hunger continues to plague millions, the food industry is playing a more active role in giving back. Soup kitchens are becoming abundant, and now fast food chains are doing their part. Pizza Hut employees from Sugar Land are delivering free meals to Hurricane Harvey victims — by kayak.
“They waded in the water, as far as they could, to get to all these people and they’re just so happy to see them. So happy to see Pizza Hut,” [chain owner] Habib laughed. “One woman was like, ‘You’ve got a customer for life.’ That made me smile.”
The last time pizza made me this happy was… well, when I last ordered a pizza. In just a few days, the Sugar Land branch delivered 120 pizzas.
“We are so proud of our team for seeing a need, stepping up and helping the community in a time of devastation,”
Habib herself braved deep waters despite being 6 months pregnant. To top it all off, the pizzas remained “steaming” in their heat-locking boxes. Now that’s five-star customer service.
