Costing Out The July 4th Picnic

According to a recent American Farm Bureau Federation informal survey, an all-American Fourth of July picnic of the nation’s favorite foods including hot dogs, cheeseburgers, pork spare ribs, potato salad, baked beans, lemonade and chocolate milk will cost slightly more this year but still comes in at less than $6 per person.

For a picnic feeding 10 people, the approximate cost is $58.72 – roughly a 5-percent increase over last year.

Anyway you slice it, dice it, grill it or chill it, that’s still a great value!

Happy Fourth of July from Feed The Dialogue NC!
