Cost of Thanksgiving meal rises

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Thanksgiving is just days away, but the cost of this year's feast will be a little bit higher than last year. 

The American Farm Bureau's 23rd annual price survey puts the cost of a Thanksgiving meal for 10 at an average of $44.61.

The price is $2.35 higher than last Thanksgiving, but only $4.46 per person.

The meal includes a 16-pound turkey, bread stuffing, sweet potatoes, rolls with butter, peas, cranberries, a relish tray of carrots and celery, plus pumpkin pie with whipped cream.
