The Average Cost of a Thanksgiving Meal is Up 20% in 2022!

The American Farm Bureau Federation just put out its annual Thanksgiving report. And the average dinner for ten in 2022 will cost $64.05 — up 20%!

That’s $6.41 per person, a pretty insane increase from $5.33 just a year ago.

It varies around the country.  In the South, it’s $5.84 . . . the Northeast, $6.40 . . . the Midwest, $6.42 . . . and out West, $7.14 per guest.

To keep things consistent, they haven’t changed their list of “typical” Thanksgiving foods since their first report in 1986 when it was $2.87 per person.

The biggest price jump this year is for stuffing, up 69%.

Based on the average, here’s what everything in their “typical” Thanksgiving feast costs . . .

  • 16-pound turkey, $28.96
  • stuffing, $3.88
  • cranberry sauce, $2.57
  • sweet potatoes, $3.96
  • dinner rolls, $3.73
  • peas, $1.90
  • carrots and celery, 88 cents
  • pumpkin pie mix, $4.28
  • two pie crusts, $3.68
  • a half-pint of whipped cream, $2.24
  • a gallon of milk, $3.84

They also do an “updated” version with three more foods a lot of us include now

If you add mashed potatoes, green beans, and ham, it jumps to $8.13 a person!
