Per capita consumption of flour was 224 lb. per person in 1900. In 1970, it was down to 111 lb., and now up to 148 lb. per person. For each person, you should plan on a way to have available 250 lb. of flour per person. Flour doesn't have to be made from wheat, though that's what we're used to. Food for thought. US flour per capita annual consumption is 150 lbs. per person in 1997. In 1998 it is 148 lbs. per person so 4 people should plan on 600 lbs of flour per year. Flour in cans has a shelf life of 18 months minimum if you can find it in cans. Foodservice distributors (Sysco, FSA, Alliant, Gordon's) are the best sources. Almost all of them have cash n carry operations for walk-in customers.
