Social Harvest Project Officer

Jessica Moreira Maia Souto started working at Social Harvest as an intern in February 2020. An Urban Agriculturalist with over 5 years of experience in research and management, she is now, leading the operations and management of this social enterprise. Jessica believes in helping individuals and communities access nutritious and fresh foods not only because it is a right but also because it is delicious. She focuses on implementing actions for better urban planning and market-community-oriented measures that bring solutions to the improvement of food safety and food security.  Working at Social Harvest is providing her with the opportunity to merge her passions for fresh and local food with business outreach. 


Jessica has an undergrad degree in International Logistics in which she targeted export solutions for native fruits in Brazil. While completing her master’s in Agribusiness, Jessica developed an evolutionary framework of urban and peri-urban agriculture across the globe. She also has international experience having lived in France and the US and working in countries belonging to the Southern Cone. Outside of work, Jessica loves cooking and sharing food with family and friends.
