We are Rhonda and Kevin Mesko. We have deep ties to the Fox Valley, having raised our family here in a home that was built by Kevin’s great grandfather. We are urban farming the land that was once an open farm.
Our mission is to make real food a part of everyday life again. We transform the eating experience so that every bite brings pure enjoyment, it’s something you relish. We source food in its original form – getting back to our roots. This means working with food producers, reducing our ingredient labels and providing the tools every person needs to enjoy real food, every day. It’s simply, good.
Meal prep has been all the buzz for the last 3–5 years but our family has been meal prepping and planning for 30+ years. As young parents we were eager to provide healthy, non-commercially processed foods to our children. To achieve this we began growing much of our own food, and canning and freezing our own vegetables, sauces and salsas. We have learned much over time and our love of food and family led us to create Relish and Roots, where we partner with local farmers to bring fresh produce and locally raised meats to your table in our meal kits.
