The summer food program in Mason County will begin soon.

According to Michelle Moss, with the Housing Authority of Maysville, the program provides breakfast and lunch to area children under the age of 18. There are several locations that will serve food throughout the summer months.

“They don’t have to sign up,” she said. “They can just show up and eat.”

According to Moss, last year, about 11,000 meals were served in Mason and Bracken counties with more expected this year.

“We do expect a little more this year, because we’ve added a couple of locations and added breakfast at one location,” Moss said.
