As students who attend a small midwestern university, we have realized that food disparities and insecurity is an often-overlooked problem. Drawing on a broader dataset, we analyzed how students are affected by food insecurity. Investigators analyzed fifteen transcripts of student interviews, created a codebook and coded the interviews. In analyzing the codes, investigators focused on three central themes: the lack of awareness of resources on or near campus, the student strategies to mitigate food insecurity, and the dietary habits or restrictions that make finding adequate food more challenging.
