7th Week

Amount needed is 300 lbs. per person for total grains, which includes wheat and pasta, flour, etc. as well as rice. Dry pack white rice will last 8-10 years if stored in a cool, dry place. Do not place dry pack cans directly on the floor. They should be placed on wood or a pallet to allow air to go underneath the cases. Each can of rice equals 5 lbs. and cost $1.69 at dry pack. A case at dry pack would equal to 30 lbs. and cost approximately $10.14. Brown rice has a much shorter shelf life because of the natural oils found in it.
