The Missouri Farm Bureau has released their food survey focused on the cost of a Thanksgiving meal. To make the food cost comparisons fair from year to year mostly pre-made items are calculated. In Missouri consumers saw a slight uptick in pricing this year with the cost of dinner being $47.41 or about $4.74 per person. Missouri Farm Bureau Spokeswoman Diane Olson tells KZIM-KSIM along with a 16 pound turkey they priced side items. The entire meal increased just under 5 dollars from 2010’s prices. The prices were still nearly two dollars lower than the national average. Olson adds the leftovers and amount of food is still considered a bargain when you break it down per person.
