District offers free student meals through federal Summer Food Service Program

The Deer Park Independent School District will offer meals at Deepwater Elementary and snacks at local apartment complexes from the HULA Reading Bus at no charge to all children ages 18 and younger as part of its Summer Food Service Program.


The HULA Reading Bus is a District outreach program created to encourage students to read during the summer months.  A school bus containing children’s books and decorated with a Hawaiian theme will make scheduled stops at area apartment complexes and other locations.


No enrollment or registration is required to participate in these federally funded programs. Adults are also encouraged to participate. The cost for an adult breakfast is $2.50, and the cost of an adult lunch is $3.75.
