New Report Examines College Students’ Ability To Meet Basic Food Needs And The Impact It Has On Their Education Aspirations
TJC’S TAKEAWAY: College hunger is often under the radar but we are excited that the Trellis Company research team has released new data about this issue! Some key findings:
- While low food security often stems from a scarcity of $$$, other factors, like insufficient time, persistent stress, and lack of information, can exacerbate collegiate food insecurity.
- Students who struggle with food insecurity face hard choices in how to allocate their scarce time and often are forced to neglect academic work in order to obtain more stable access to food.
