2023 Thanksgiving Dinner Survey by AFBF


The American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF) conducted their 38th Annual Survey on the cost of a Thanksgiving dinner.  The cost of the meal in 2023 declined by 4.5 percent to $61.17 for ten participants using a standard menu.  Notwithstanding the reduction for 2023, Thanksgiving meal is 25 percent higher than in 2019, pre-COVID.  The reduction in cost of a 16 lb. turkey at $1.71 per lb. was the major contributor to the lower cost.
