Homelessness has been associated with severe food insufficiency and poor health outcomes. This may be due to the unique social and environmental challenges to healthful food choices that housing instability presents in addition to economic hardship. This study uses data from the National Household Food Acquisition and Purchase Survey (FoodAPS) to examine whether housing instability is associated with various indicators of less healthful eating among low-income households. Findings from this study provide improved understanding of the mechanisms through which housing instability contributes to poor health outcomes.
