Webinar: Food Insecurity, the Silent Struggle Impacting Student Success

41 million people or 1 in 6 struggle with hunger daily in the United States. Hunger is an epidemic that knows no bounds and is present in every community, including higher education communities. In 2016 a national survey was conducted to determine the number of college and university students personally experiencing food insecurity. The survey results indicated that 1 in 5 students did not have reliable access to sufficient quantities of affordable nutritious food.

Food insecurity is a growing public health problem for college students, with significant potential for adverse effects on both physical and mental health functioning. Food insecurity is defined as, limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate and safe food or limited or uncertain ability to acquire acceptable foods in socially acceptable ways due to a lack of money or other resources and is reported to have increased among the general US population as a result of the Great Recession.

This webinar documents the ongoing initiative by the University of Illinois to eradicate food insecurity issues for our students. This webinar will provide the skills necessary for all higher education professionals to effectively identify at risk student populations on college campuses and programming that will positively impact the success of students faced with food insecurity. By actively addressing food insecurity issues, educators can ensure that the only hunger faced by today’s students is the hunger for knowledge.
