Wow - what stores are making you spend that much to get a free turkey? I think we are spoiled here! Local chain runs a deal where you spend $20 you get a free turkey - a smaller one - but free! Meijer usually discounters the price of turkey per lb by 50% I think if you spend $20-$25 in groceries - maybe $40? I don't remember! I'm on the hunt for turkeys for cheap! Co worker and I are organizing holiday giving again this year and there is a group of families (30!) that usually get Thanksgiving dinner via a church and for whatever reason that is not happening this year - so we're trying to figure out if we can get enough people at our work to donate the food. 30 turkeys is a lot! But they said they would take whatever we could give - doesn't have to be the whole shebang.
