Happy Thanksgiving! by Erin Keltner What will it take to feed people this holiday? 7.11 billion pounds of turkey 2.4 billion pounds of sweet potatoes 1.1 billion pounds of pumpkins 750 million pounds of cranberries 248 million turkeys expected to be raised Be thankful and share what you have with others who may have less. And if you are frying one of the 248 million turkeys that are being raised, don’t burn your house down! Be careful.
