With higher prices for food, there has been an increase in people seeking assistance from local food banks and pantries.

Anyone who has been to the local market to purchase a turkey and other items for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday has experienced sticker shock as food prices have increased over the past few months.

According to a survey released by the American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF), Thanksgiving dinner is expected to cost 20% more than it did last year.
