Food Grade buckets are a great method for food storage. They keep your food fresh, help you store in bulk, and can stack, making them more space-efficient. Here at Emergency Essentials®, we love food storage buckets.
What could make these great tools better? Short answer: Gamma Seal Lids
These lids simplify the entire process of using your food. Two rubber gaskets insure an air tight seal. The twist lock action makes it incredibly easy to open and close, getting access to your food. And they come in a variety of colors, allowing you to create a color-coded system for your storage.

Then screw the lid on and you are ready to store:
