As Thanksgiving approaches, most of us get excited about seeing family, but even more excited about the food the family members bring. Most of us can already smell the turkey, mash potatoes and gravy, fresh bread, and the many,many desserts. If you host Thanksgiving, or in my case a Friendsgiving, American Farm Bureau wants your expertise.
It takes a lot of time and preparation to host Thanksgiving with family members. But nothing compares to the cost of buying the turkey, rolls, potatoes, cranberry sauce and the many other staples of a typical Thanksgiving dinner. With big families, it is typical for a potluck style so the host isn’t burdened with the cost, however some host prefer to cook the meal and all the sides. The American Farm Bureau Federation is seeking volunteers to check retail prices of foods used to prepare a traditional Thanksgiving Day dinner. Pricing information from around the country will be used to determine the average cost of a Thanksgiving dinner for 10.
Browse to the online survey at on any mobile device or tablet and input retail prices found at your local grocery store. Nov. 6 is the deadline to submit a survey. If you submit a survey, you could just win a prize. New this year, everyone who completes a survey will be entered to receive one of five $100 “Thank You” gift cards.
AFBF’s news release on the average cost of Thanksgiving Dinner for 10 will be released Thursday, Nov. 15.
