According to the American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF), the cost of a Thanksgiving dinner will be more expensive this year. This year’s average cost for a meal feeding 10 people is $49.20, "which is $5.73 more than last year."
The AFBF has been conducting the Thanksgiving survey since 1986. Back then; the cost of a Thanksgiving meal for 10 people was $28.74. Despite the increase in prices, consumers are not cutting back on their feasting plans.
