Seriously though, the LDS church has some very handy food storage calculators available online, you can order things like wheat, beans, etc from their store website all handily packaged in #10 cans delivered to your door, and you can find the location of their Bishop's Storehouse in each area and make arrangements to buy in bulk from them and even use their facilities to can up the things you get there.
The one in SC is in Columbia and I haven't yet tried their services but I plan on finding out more about it this spring. Hmm...maybe I should try to bump up the schedule a bit, since they probably fall under the terrorist organization category now...

I tweak it a bit (we don't eat jello or drink kool-aid often) but it's a good guideline.
There's also a bunch of info online for recipes using stored foods, rotating your food storage, finding space for it, etc. in the blogs and forums of the LDS community.
