CARLEY SCHELCK



"Embrace change."

          There is nothing more energizing than a woman on a mission — unless it's a foodie woman on a mission. And Carley Schelck is known to be both.
          Last year, she launched a pilot version of Cultivating Cooks, a program that teaches children how to build a garden, cultivate it, choose ingredients and cook them.
          Now, Carley and a team of chefs, community leaders, gardeners and nutritionists are expanding into six elementary schools. The 10-week program, involving some of the most noted chefs in Ottawa, is all about getting kids to make healthier choices.
         "If kids grow, handle and prepare food, they're ten times more likely to eat it than if their parents make them."
          Carley's other passion is The Urban Element. With a growing team, her customized catering service is taking on Ottawa's best. It's a lot of change, but she and her team are ready.
          "Every day is different, which makes me a happy woman. It's important to stretch yourself enough to have something new and fresh in front of you every day."
