MarketPlace cited AFBF’s annual Thanksgiving dinner cost survey in an article about gearing up for holiday meal shopping. Describing AFBF’s $48.90 dinner for 10 as “a little more humble,” than other feasts, Marketplace also noted “It’s alcohol-free, and cheaper than it’s been in years. It’s useful perspective on what a feast can be for families around the country.” In a tweet posted Nov. 20, the news website asked readers to guess the average cost of Thanksgiving dinner as calculated by AFBF. Just 11 percent of those responding correctly guessed “Less than $50.”
