Best Local Meal Kit Service: MOXY

Gene and Lou Turner, husband-and-wife veterans of the food-service industry, were laid off during the pandemic, so they decided to start MOXY. MOXY offers a variety of local, chef-driven meal kits. Each themed MOXY box comes with prepped and portioned ingredients, plus instructions, so you’re ready to cook as soon as you get it home. Recent iterations include a Pasta Kit, with sourdough focaccia, salad, pasta and dessert; a Vegetarian Kit, with a salad, black bean burger and dessert; and a Breakfast Kit, with coffee, chipped beef and a stroopwafel. The duo operates out of Incubator Kitchen Collective, where you can pick up your weekly MOXY meal; they also do some limited delivery. moxycincinnati.com.
