Buba Noddle Bar

Annie Nault of Buba Noodle Bar in Manchester sets up for outdoor lunch service on June 12.

During the early months of the pandemic, Buba Noodle Bar offered free meals to children home from school and once a week sent lunch to health care workers at two local hospitals.

Owner Trumin Nguyen kept his staff of about 10 employees on board even after business slowed down when the restaurant transitioned to take-out only during the state-ordered shutdown. He even gave them a raise.
