As colleges and universities begin to see an increasingly more diverse student population, food insecurity is becoming more and more prevalent on campuses. Food insecurity is a condition in which persons do not have adequate resources to feed themselves, either nutritiously, or at all (United States Department of Agriculture [USDA], 2013). The purpose of this study is explore the impact of food insecurity on the student curricular and co-curricular experiences. This study is intended to further the profession’s knowledge of the intersection between food insecurity and the collegiate experience. Through an intentional and in depth case study of an undergraduate student who identifies as experiencing food insecurity this study addresses the following research questions: How do college students conceptualize food insecurity through their personal lived experiences? How does food insecurity impact college students’ curricular experience? How does food insecurity impact college students’ co-curricular experience? The results of this study addresses common themes between student experiences through the students own words.
