Higher education brings with it a number of concerns for students, but one of the least talked-about–but most concerning–is the increasing issue of food insecurity on campus.
A new study from researchers at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville shows that college students in the university’s geographic area are impacted by food insecurity on campus at a higher rate than the national average, according to information from the university.
Facing food insecurity on campus can lead to poor academic performance, unhealthy spending habits, and other negative coping mechanism, the researchers explain in the study, which is published in Current Developments in Nutrition.
