Food Insecurity - Queen's University

Thank you for participating in our survey! We are fourth year Queen’s University nursing students, and we are working with Swipe It Forward Queen's to address food insecurity among Queen’s University students. We are looking to obtain information directly from the student population regarding your knowledge and experiences with food insecurity. Any personal information collected is solely for the purpose of identifying the population most affected by food insecurity. The results of this survey will be used for academic purposes only, and may be shared with Swipe It Forward Queen's team members for further analysis. Your responses will be confidential, and no identifying information will be included in our final report. Participation in this survey is voluntary and will take approximately 5 minutes. You may withdraw from the survey at any time.
