Worth Our Weight, Evelyn Cheatham?s culinary apprentice program, has opened for lunch and brunch at its new location at 1021 Hahman Drive.

The cafe serves pastries and coffee from 9 to 11 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, followed by lunch from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on those days. The popular Worth Our Weight brunch is served from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sundays.

Cheatham is running the cafe as a community table, which means that patrons pay only what they want to pay. ?We went to donation because we really wanted to differentiate ourselves from being a restaurant,? she said.

The apprentice program teaches food service fundamentals to teens in a supportive, hands-on environment. In the future, Cheatham said she hopes to serve dinners as well to help out working families who are short on time.
