Food insecurity, defined as limited or intermittent access to nutritionally adequate and safe foods, accessed in socially acceptable ways, is associated with numerous adverse physical and mental health outcomes.1 One in 6 individuals are affected by migraine, which is inversely associated with household income2; however, little is known about the association between food insecurity and migraine, particularly in the United States and among young adults. Young adulthood represents an important period distinct from adolescence and older adulthood, when economic and educational transitions may increase risk for food insecurity. The objective of this study was to determine the association between food insecurity and migraine in a nationally representative sample of US young adults.
