Stranded "Hero" Bakers Feed Thousands of Storm Victims


A group of Mexican bakers stranded in their Houston, Texas bakery for two days because of rising flood waters caused by Hurricane Harvey put their time to good use – by baking hundreds of loaves of pan dulce for storm victims.

The four bakers at El Bolillo Bakery realised they were going to be stranded late one Friday night as the streets became impassable, The Independent reports. But with the power still on they decided to knuckle down and bake through the night and throughout the next day, getting through nearly two tonnes of flour before they rescued.

The pan dulce, Mexican sweet bread, was then distributed to storm victims.

The story has since gone viral, with the bakers being hailed as “heroes” on social media. Thankfully, only one suffered damage to his home as a result of the storm.
