The average cost of a 10-person Thanksgiving meal.

According to the American Farm Bureau Federation, the typical cost of hosting a Thanksgiving feast for 10 costs just over $50 each year. 


The meal doesn’t just include turkey and a couple of skimpy sides — we’re talking 16-pound turkeys, stuffing, sweet potatoes, bread, dessert - the whole feast - for just around $5 per person.

What the figure doesn’t include is any alcohol, which could easily double or triple to cost of a large meal (not just on Thanksgiving).
