High schoolers and their families dressed up for a lunch at Bonefish Grill on Saturday to learn proper eating etiquette.

The 100 Black Men of Central Virginia hosted its annual etiquette class for scholars Saturday afternoon. They're learning the "dos" and "don'ts" of having a meal the proper way, from which fork to use to how to use chop sticks.

The etiquette workshop is led by local radio personality Jane Foy.

Organizers say teaching the right behavior to teens allows them to have the skills for life.

There's also a similar event for middle schoolers, instilling those habits at an even earlier age.

The organization has had a partnership with Bonefish Grill for three years now to do these workshops.
