It Will Cost 13% More to Serve Thanksgiving This Year

Every year, the American Farm Bureau Federation releases a study about the retail cost of serving Thanksgiving dinner, and based on their numbers, it’ll cost you 13% more this year than last year. The good news, they say, is that it’s still less than $5 per person.

This year it’ll cost an average of $49.20 to serve Thanksgiving dinner for ten. Yeah, I want to shop at their grocery store too!  The dinner includes turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, rolls with butter, peas, cranberries, carrots and celery, pumpkin pie with whipped cream, and coffee and milk. The turkey is the most expensive part of the meal, up $3.91 to $21.57 this year for a 16 pound bird. When the AFBF started this study in 1986, the average cost of Thanksgiving dinner was $28.74. Last year it cost $43.47.
