Hunger on Campus (PDF)

Hunger on Campus is an October 2016 report that calls attention to the nature and prevalence of food insecurity among current college students. The 47-page report was authored by James Dubick, Brandon Matthews, and Clare Cady with support from four campus-based organizations: the College and University Food Bank Alliance, the National Student Campaign Against Hunger and Homelessness, the Student Government Resource Center, and the Student Public Interest Research Groups. The authors surveyed 3,765 students at 26 four-year colleges and eight community colleges, revealing that almost half (48%) of students surveyed had experienced food insecurity in the past month and nearly a quarter (22%) of these students experienced levels of food insecurity that qualified them as hungry. Rates of hunger were roughly equal at community colleges (25%) and four-year institutions (20%).
