Further develops the knowledge base on food insecurity among college students. It draws on a survey of almost 3,800 students at 34 community and 4-year colleges across 12 states – the broadest sample to date. The authors find that 22 percent of respondents have the very lowest levels of food insecurity, and 13 percent of students at community colleges are homeless. These figures are strikingly similar to prior estimates, and help to confirm that far too many students today are struggling.
