(Sent to all contacts, administrators, counselors)

.
The American Farm Bureau Federation’s 35th annual survey of classic items found on the Thanksgiving Day dinner table indicates the average cost of this year’s feast for 10 is $46.90 or less than $5.00 per person. This is a $2.01 decrease from last year’s average of $48.91.  Read more.

Thanksgiving celebrations will look different for many Americans this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Gatherings are likely to be fewer and farther between, with social distancing and perhaps even remote family get-togethers.

Lessons to use in the coming days:
State Your Plate - Discover the top states that produce many of our common holiday foods in the United States.
Pumpkin Pie in a Bag - Share Illinois statistics of pumpkins grown and uses.
More interest approach activities/labs

We are very fortunate to have the most economical, abundant, and nutritious food supply in the World. 

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
