Thanksgiving Dinner Cost Up 20 Percent

AZ Daily Independent-

Spending time with family and friends at Thanksgiving remains important for many Americans and this year the cost of the meal is also top of mind. Farm Bureau’s 37th annual survey provides a snapshot of the average cost of this year’s classic Thanksgiving feast for 10, which is $64.05 or less than $6.50 per person. This is a $10.74 or 20% increase from last year’s average of $53.31.

The centerpiece on most Thanksgiving tables – the turkey – costs more than last year, at $28.96 for a 16-pound bird. That’s $1.81 per pound, up 21% from last year, due to several factors beyond general inflation. Farm Bureau “volunteer shoppers” checked prices Oct. 18-31, before most grocery store chains began featuring whole frozen turkeys at sharply lower prices. more

  1. Yeah, but if you put the 16 cents you saved on July 4th, 2021 into a high interest rate savings account, this Thanksgiving increased cost can be offset by 16.01 cents. Then you put that 16.01 cent savings back into your savings account and use it for Christmas, saving even more.
