Tackling childhood obesity in the community was the focus of the Healthy Living Matters Summit at the Asia Society.

Local 2's Dominique Sachse said she was honored to emcee the program Thursday and to meet keynote speaker Stephen Ritz, a teacher in New York's South Bronx, who educated attendees about cleaning up their kids' diets.

Ritz and his students grow lush gardens in the Bronx for food, greenery and jobs.
