To assess the prevalence and identify possible predictors of food insecurity among college students at the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa.
Cross-sectional survey, including the US Department of Agriculture’s Household Food Security Survey Module, demographic and spending variables.
University of Hawai’i at Mānoa, Honolulu, Hawai’i (USA).
Four hundred and forty-one non-freshmen students from thirty-one randomly selected classes.
Twenty-one per cent of students surveyed were food-insecure, while 24 % were at risk of food insecurity. Students at higher risk of food insecurity included those who reported living on campus and those living off-campus with room mates. Those identifying themselves as Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders, Filipinos and mixed were also at increased risk of food insecurity.
Food insecurity is a significant problem among college students at the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa. Food availability and accessibility should be increased for these students through the establishment of on-campus food banks and student gardens. Future studies should assess the prevalence of food insecurity in other college campuses nationwide.
