Food insecurity exists when there is a lack of, or inconsistent access to, adequate, affordable, and nutritious food. Food insecurity is associated with a wide range of health and behavioral outcomes among children, adults, and seniors. Furthermore, food insecurity can have adverse effects on students’ ability to succeed in an academic environment. This study investigates the prevalence of food insecurity among students at The University of Rhode Island, a large land grant state university.
