You may need 2 or 3 of them though since we use 2 for our 40 lb bag of dog food,but since our food runs out like every 2 - 2 1/2 weeks or so,it doesnt stay in the container for long lol.
But lately we are deciding just to chuck out the containers and go buy the containers for the food storage so it'll just be one container to use.
