The exceptionally high prevalence of food insecurity in this sample of homeless adults living with mental illness indicates the need for consideration and intervention. Screening for the aforementioned correlates may help identify those who are food insecure. The present study supports the notion that current food provision systems to food insecure individuals are insufficient, with a better systematic response needed. Additional implications of covariates are discussed.
- Food insecurity interventions are needed immediately to reduce an already high prevalence of food insecurity among homeless mentally ill adults
- Several correlates were identified and may be used for screening/future research
