You can put it in gallon Ziploc baggies, then freeze it. Move it from the freezer to your canister when you need to refill it.
Are there no day-old bread shops by you? It is cheap there, and still very fresh.

The question is, how can I store it so bugs can’t get into it but not be intrusive? I don’t have a lot of storage or closets in my house to hide a container and with 2 inqusitive kids, I have to keep it secure.
