Thanksgiving dinner should only cost $5 a person


Thanksgiving dinner should only cost $5 a person according to a new Farm Bureau survey

From fb.org, "The American Farm Bureau Federation’s 34th annual survey of classic items found on the Thanksgiving Day dinner table indicates the average cost of this year’s feast for 10 is $48.91, or less than $5.00 per person. This is a 1-cent increase from last year’s average of $48.90.

“The average cost of this year’s Thanksgiving dinner is essentially unchanged from last year, after three years of decline since 2015,” said AFBF Chief Economist Dr. John Newton. “Americans continue to enjoy the most affordable food supply in the world, but most don’t realize only 8 cents of every dollar consumers spend on food goes to farmers,” he added." Does that seem realistic to you? Does your Thanksgiving dinner only cost $5 per person, or do you find yourself spending more than that? Pretty interesting and you can see more here
