Food insecurity stigma, neoliberalization, and college students in California’s Inland Empire
Food, Culture & Society

A team led by Paloma Villegas, associate professor of sociology, published a study on the topic of food security among college students in the Inland Empire. The abstract of the study reads: “This paper analyzes the perspectives of college students toward food insecurity and basic needs campus resources. We draw from interviews with 49 students at one university in California’s Inland Empire conducted in 2019. We found that regardless of personal experience with food insecurity, participants were generally reluctant to access resources or disclose their experiences with the campus community.” 

Contributing to the study with Villegas were CSUSB sociology alumni Courtney McGrath ’20, Arelï Enriquez-Johnson ’21, Roxanne Hudgens ’20, Natalie Flores ’21, and Rodolfo Felix ’20.
