Abstract

After exploring the limited research available on food insecurity among college students, the goal of this study was to add in-depth information on the resources available to college and university students in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. This survey is an in-depth, qualitative interview with key informants in the student affairs departments at local colleges and universities to learn about: the demographics of institutions of higher education in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and the food resources campuses are providing to the students in need. Finally, the survey uncovered trends in addressing food insecurity among the colleges and universities who participated in the survey.
