Hope this helps.
The local deli here has 5 gallon buckets they set out the back door and give away. Most had been full of dill pickles. I would call those food grade and they are free. Ck the local restaurants for really cheap 5 gallon buckets. I am not opposed to spending 5 dollars for a bucket but free is free and I also use these for my bucket garden.
