Food insecurity (FI) is a leading public health concern yet is understudied amongst postsecondary students. A substantial proportion (34.4%) of our student sample reported FI; Black, low-SES, and low-SES women students were most likely to experience FI; and FI was related to poorer academic, health, and stress outcomes. Employee awareness was low, and some expressed negative sentiments. We demonstrate the need for research and intervention not only on FI but also on faculty/staff awareness and attitudes.
