Thanksgiving Dinner Costs Up

The cost to prepare a classic Thanksgiving meal will increase by 13 percent, according to a new report.

The American Farm Bureau Federation reports that the cost of a classic Thanksgiving dinner will rise 13 percent this year, making it the biggest year-over-year increase since 1990. While the price of a 16-pound turkey is up 22 percent, even a plant-based Thanksgiving will be more expensive than usual—frozen green peas are up 17 percent, a 30-ounce can of pumpkin-pie filling has risen 16 percent, and a 14-ounce bag of stuffing mix increased 9 percent. Additionally, fresh cranberries and a three-pound bag of sweet potatoes have risen 2.9 and 2.2 percent, respectively. The AFBF attributes the price increases to a greater demand for products and a lower supply due to this year’s poor weather conditions.
