Bern, Switzerland (AP) Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon says he will head a new task force to tackle the global food crisis.

Ban says the first priority for the task force is filling the 755 million dollar shortfall in funding for the world food program.

The secretary-general tells reporters in Switzerland that the U.N.'s food and agriculture organization has a 1.7 billion dollar plan to provide seeds for farmers in the world's poorest countries.
