At the church where we belong (LDS) we are all advised to be prepared, so when the calamity comes we are not going to be afraid. A food storage is one thing we need to prepare. It is very important that we have at least 72 hour kit for each member of the family. Obedient to our church leader, we build a food storage at home. We store those foods in buckets that are clean and reusable. Sometimes the food we order are packed in pail, buckets and sometimes barrels. Sometimes, I wonder where the manufacturers buy those pails and buckets; am thinking maybe they bought it at drumsofsteel.com steel drum, an online company that sells metal pails, buckets, barrels and more.
