Long Term Food Storage – Air Tight Containers

Successful long term food storage requires packaging that is air tight. One method for acheiving this is the use of plastic buckets with gasket lids. You can obtain these at reasonable prices. Buckets work very well because they can be stacked, and foods can be stored in amounts that aren’t too heavy to move. Also, buckets offer excellent protection against moisture. There are a variety of container sizes (i.e. 4.25 gal, 5 gal., and 6 gal.). Don’t bother using oxygen absorbers unless you are using buckets with gasket lids to assure a good seal. Check out these Food Grade White 5 Gallon Buckets. We’ll be posting more information very soon on where to get buckets and lids.
