There's good news for American families this Thanksgiving - the cost of a turkey feast has remained stable, rising by a single penny compared to last year. The American Farm Bureau has found that the classic ingredients for a Thanksgiving dinner to feed 10 people will cost $48.91 in 2019. That's less than $5 per person.
An estimated 46 million turkeys are eaten every year at Thanksgiving and this year the birds are set to cost about four percent less than in 2018, working out at $20.80 for a 16-pound purchase. According to the American Farm Bureau, U.S. farmers only receive eight cents out of every dollar spent on food for the Thanksgiving feast.
