Some of these risk factors include lower levels of income and employment. The long-term goal is to identify if food security is more prevalent in the SCI population, and to develop ways to improve food security in the SCI population. The purpose of this study is to determine the rates of food insecurity in a sample of people living with a SCI and to identify some perceptions of barriers to healthy eating in the SCI population.
