Student Housing and Food Insecurity Study
Fyall, Stevens & Manzo
The purpose of the Student Housing and Food Insecurity Study is to understand the prevalence of housing and food insecurity among university students across the University of Washington’s (UW’s) three campuses (UW-Seattle, UW-Tacoma, and UW-Bothell). This study is motivated not only by concerns regarding the increased cost of living in the Puget Sound region, but also by the lack of systematic information about how UW students on all three campuses might be affected by these economic changes. This study is the first to systematically examine the extent of housing and food insecurity among the entire University of Washington student population.
Overall, this research project seeks to address the following research questions:
1. How prevalent is housing and food insecurity among UW students across all campuses – Seattle, Tacoma, and Bothell?
2. What are the characteristics of UW students experiencing housing and/or food insecurity?
3. What factors are associated with housing and food insecurity among UW students?
This study is a project of Urban@UW’s Homelessness Research Initiative.
Access is not Equity: Expanding Cultural Food Resources
To address the basic needs of all our student and to promote an inclusive environment,I proposed to increase culturally relevant items in our food pantry that accommodate diversity of diets, a practice that contributes to creating a welcoming sense of community, demonstrates cultural relevancy, and advances our mission of integration equitable practices for student success. Nourish Pierce County is the largest food supplier to UWT Food pantry and all food banks in Pierce County and would also like to explore the cultural food needs of the diverse communities that they serve. This partnership uses UWT research resources to explore UWT stuents and Pierce County food insecure residents’ needs for cultural foods. Based on the results of surveys and focus groups , Nourish will be able t to use its network of food suppliers and farms to distribute cultural foods wanted by UWT students and food insecure clients of Pierce County
