ELMAU CASTLE, GERMANY - G7 leaders will pledge about $5 billion Tuesday to help resolve food supply problems spreading worldwide, in large part due to Russia's invasion of major agricultural supplier Ukraine, a US official said.

"The G7 will commit to contribute up to $5 billion to address global food security, over half of which will come from the United States," the senior official told reporters.
