    you can buy 25lb bags of beans (black, pinto, and/or white beans) for $14-$16. I have sprouted these to make sure they were not irradiated. They are not and you can eat for pennies on the dollar and/or stock up if any disaster hits?? You do not have to be a member of the LDS-it is just like going to the store-very convenient-
    Good luck~
    **they have other dry bulk foods for sale to: wheat berries, sugar, dry milk, macaroni etc..
