Americans will save money on food this holiday season.
The cost for Thanksgiving’s turkey dinner and all the fixings is $49.12 for a ten, according to the American Farm Bureau Federation, or less than $5 per serving.
“The U.S. consumer spends the lowest percentage of their disposable income on food because of the hard work of farmers and ranchers. So this Thanksgiving take time to thank a farmer,” says the Director of Market Intelligence John Newton.
An abundance of turkeys this year is credited with keeping costs lower.
On average, all the stuffing, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, vegetables, and of course bird are 44 cents cheaper per serving than they were last year.
