No student eats alone at Boca Raton Community High School. The "We Dine Together" club launched earlier this year and is now expected to take off in more than 200 schools across the country in January.
On Tuesday, State Rep. Emily Slosberg visited the students in the club at the high school to recognize them for their bravery.
The three students who noticed the divisiveness in their cafeteria at lunch hour created the club. They were determined to end the loneliness they felt watching students without a friendly face to talk to.
Slosberg recognized the founders of the club award for their bravery to tackle a growing problem among teenagers; depression, bullying and suicide.
