Abstract:
A cross-sectional study was conducted to assess the prevalence of food-insecurity among university residential students during the month of Ramadan. Results revealed that seventy per cent of students surveyed were food-insecure, while 30% were at risk of food insecurity. Food insecurity is a significant problem among residents at Kolej Jasmine. The establishment of on-campus food banks is necessary to help student decrease the burden. Future studies should assess the prevalence of food insecurity in other UiTM residential college nationwide.
