The theme for ‘World Food Day’ for the year 2020 is ‘Grow, Nourish, Sustain, Together’. Life has changed for the entire world with the pandemic COVID-19. It has created a time for people to reflect on things we truly cherish and our basic needs. Taking care of one’s health has been given the most priority which has made everyone rekindle their appreciation for food. There is a major shift of focus to health and immunity with food being in the limelight. Preserving access to safe and nutritious food is and will continue to be an essential part of the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly for the vulnerable communities, who are hit hardest. 

In recent years, there has been significant progress in improving agricultural productivity. Though we produce more than enough food to feed everyone, our food systems are not in balance. Hunger, obesity, environmental degradation, loss of agro-biological diversity, and food wastage are only some of the issues that cause this imbalance. As countries develop COVID-19 recovery plans, it is an opportunity to bring innovative solutions based on scientific evidence to build back better and improve the food systems.

World Food Day is calling for global solidarity to help people especially the most vulnerable, to recover from the crisis, and to make food systems more resilient and availability of sustainable healthy diets for all. We need to make sure that our food systems grow a variety of food to nourish a growing population and sustain the planet, together. We all have a role to play, from increasing the demand for nutritious food by choosing healthy and not letting sustainable habits fall, despite these uncertain times.


Success Stories

Nasser, 52

Diabetes Program

I have been living with type 2 diabetes for 5 years now. I used to struggle to maintain my blood sugar levels under control. Droobi has truly changed my life! My blood sugars are at target now, I lost some weight and changed my eating habits. I am so happy with the daily support I receive from my health coach. They are always super-supportive and positive even in my worse days. I really don't know what would I do without my personal coach. Thank you Droobi for helping me live better with diabetes.

Gestational Diabetes Program

On my 3rd pregnancy, I was informed after doing a test that I had gestational diabetes. I was really shocked because I was healthy in my previous pregnancies. When my doctor recommended Droobi, I thought I will give it a try. My health coach was super reactive and very helpful. She supported me in tracking my blood sugars and make the right food choices every single day. The program helped me overcome my fear and have a healthy delivery and baby. I am still using it even after giving birth.

Prevention program

​I have heard about Droobi online and I decided to give its Prevention Program a try, given that diabetes runs in my family. It’s a very easy program, small steps made me lose weight, exercise more, and reduce the risk of getting chronic disease. Great simple app that offers the support, through reminders, tracking tools, lessons and professional coaches. I’ve been using it over a year and I would recommend it to anyone.
