The late scandals regarding food caused an increased request of safety by a growing number of consumers, who more and more decide to buy organic agricultural produce. This paper analyses the phenomenon of the use of organic food in public service, that is particularly diffused in Italy and it is especially growing in public school lunches, as well as it is also interesting to evaluate what it is happening within other significative areas. The research examines some of the late analysis regarding trends and attitudes of organic food consumers, it also provides a study of the trading places where to get access to it, as well as an evaluation of the range of the phenomenon that concerns the use of organic food in public school lunches in Italy. The study outlines the possible benefit related to the likely increase of organic food consumption in public canteens and school lunches (improved safety and health benefit to consumers), and its effect on local socio-economic development, it concludes with the results of a research done in Palermo and in its province, the research aims to estimate the extent of the demand in case of use of organic food in public school lunches and public canteens.
