Today, we’re publishing our new research report, “Hunger On Campus,” on the issue of campus food insecurity.
We kept hearing from students about this growing problem on campuses across the country. In order to better understand the issue, we partnered with several other groups to carry out a nationwide survey.
We ended up surveying 3,765 students in 12 states attending eight community colleges and 26 four-year colleges and universities.
Along with our partners on this project – the College and University Food Bank Alliance, the Student Government Resource Center, and the Student Public Interest Research Groups – we’re excited to release our findings.
The quick summary: our findings reinforce the growing understanding that food insecurity presents a serious challenge for today’s college students, and highlight the need for additional research to better understand this problem and explore effective solutions.
