6:11 pm
to dispose of their flocks. stephanie/ram now, with thanksgiving right around the corner, some central iowa non-profits could feel the strain when it comes to donating thanksgiving day dinners. stephanie: just in time for the holidays -- turkey prices are about 30 to 40 percent higher. with turkeys in short supply, prices are going up and for the needy, that may mean cutting something else off the dinner list. with the number of turkeys donated each year variable, the food bank are worried this may hit close to home.. ""families in need really feel the impact of those price increases first. then, of course, through our purchasing program when our prices go up, it's the same thing... we aren't able to buy as much of something or maybe we choose not to buy it at all" says linda scheid, executive director, food bank of siouxland. local butchers are feeling an effect as well steve hein says just like gasoline, a price hike won't deter customers from buying a turkey for thanksgiving. the bigger problem is... not enough turkeys to go around. " "some of the product i'm trying to get... i'm having a real hard time with. like i said, price is a little higher but the biggest problem is not having the product" says steve hein,
