Teen creates app to help students find lunch buddies

A teen has designed a new app to make sure that no one has to eat lunch alone.

The app is called Sit With Us and is designed to help kids find a welcoming group in the lunchroom.

16-year-old Natalie Hampton from California created it after she ate alone her entire seventh grade year.

She says the app is private, so no one has to know.

Students can designate themselves as "ambassadors" and send out invitations to their table.

It's just one small way to combat bullying - one lunch period at a time.
