My mother in law is pondering bestowing additional home storage wheat upon us. I spent a good deal of time this morning trying to find if one could purchase food grade buckets online. That way its weevil proof and more or less moisture resistant and food grade so you don't find out afterwards your food has been poisoned by fumes from the bucket. I found I could buy 1 five gallon bucket for $21 or I could buy 300 buckets for $2 a piece. I found people trying to assure me their dyed buckets were really FDA approved (that's not likely). But I couldn't find just plain old cheap buckets. At all.
Its easier to find a water valve made out of food grade plastic than a bucket.
