Does Food Insecurity Exist? A Wheaton College Case Study
Discussions regarding food insecurity on college campuses have been increasing since a 2011 study was published finding widespread food insecurity existed at a university in Australia. The goal of this original research is to identify if food insecurity is present on the campus of Wheaton College and to examine the severity of the issue through the use of qualitative analysis. This study hopes that an increasing knowledge of student hunger will lead to changes in the access of both healthy and affordable food to students at Wheaton College, and more generally to students all across the country.
