American Farm Bureau Survey Shows Thanksgiving Meal Cost Down

American Farm Bureau Survey Shows Thanksgiving Meal Cost Down

Consumers have a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving with the price of the holiday meal dropping from a year ago.  Farm Bureau’s Mace Thorton says their 28th annual price survey shows the average cost of this year’s feast for 10 is down 44-cent price decrease from last year’s average of $49.48.

The reason for the drop is most of the 16 mainstay meal items are down, but especially the centerpiece of the table.

He says the cost of this year’s meal, at less than $5 per serving, remains an excellent value for consumers.
