Boston’s Anoush’ella Feeds The Front Line And The Out of Work

In the face of hardship, keeping an eye on what needs to be done.

Anoush’ella has created a devoted local following in Boston for their Armenian Lebanese fast-casual comfort food. However, their three locations have been challenged by pandemic restrictions just like everyone else. But founders Nina and Raffi Festekjian grew up in Lebanon during the civil war, so they’re no strangers to struggle—and they believe in acting to help those in need. That’s why they’ve been donating meals delivered not only to healthcare workers and others on the front line, but also to hundreds of people who lost their jobs in restaurant shutdowns.
