dc.description.abstractThe rate of food insecurity within the collegiate population is four times greater than the national average. The purpose was to educate students on the Mediterranean Diet (MD) and teach them to use items from the Campus Cupboard (CC). Forty subjects were assigned to the control or experimental group. A 5-week nutrition education session was provided to the experimental group. MD adherence was measured using Mediterranean Diet Quality Index (KIDMED) and Mediterranean Diet Score Tool (MDST) . Subject’s height, weight, BMI, and BP were recorded at the baseline and at the end of seven weeks.A significant difference was observed in weight pre- to post-intervention for the experimental group. After the seven week intervention the KIDMED scores and MDST scores increased in intervention group by 1.55 and 0.77, respectively. Results suggest the intervention did not significantly change the dietary patterns, BMI, or BP. Keywords: Mediterranean diet, food insecurity, nutrition, obesityen_US
