REPORT: Trellis Company: Studying On Empty

This report unveils the drivers and intersecting contextual factors of student food insecurity with a working definition as an evolving, rather than stagnant state. Factors range from receiving SNAP benefits to being a single parent to being a former foster youth, as well as household and social support factors:

“Among college students, research has identified subgroups who tend to be disproportionately food secure. Accumulated household wealth, access to reliable transportation, the existence of strong social networks, and access to healthy, affordable groceries contribute to food security across income groups and help households weather income shocks (RTI, 2014).” (pg 14)

Through student-centric analysis, the report outlines best practices around supporting students, including integration into advising and advocacy for systemic changes.
