Long term food storage. What do you keep and how much?

I just got back from my 2nd trip to the Mormon food pantry. NO, I'm not a Morman and NO I won't be converting anytime EVER. However, they DO have it going on with the long term food storage deal. If you have an LDS Food Storage facility near you, it's worth the trip. They are non-profit, open to anyone. In my 2 trips they didn't try to convert me even once. They are very proud of their facility though.

Last time I went I brought home a few cases of #10 cans full of Hard White Wheat, Black and Great Northern Beans, and dehydrated carrots. Tonight I came home with a few cases of #10 cans full of flour, dehydrated onions, potato flakes, pinto beans, dehydrated apple slices and quick cooking rolled oats. All dried goods that last a min of 25 years. Next time I go I want to get a few cases of dry milk and some more carrots and I should be mostly good.

I also have 100 pounds of rice and 70 pounds of sugar in mylar sealed 5 gallon food grade buckets and 15 pounds of salt.

All in all I have around 600 pounds of dried food and have only spent about $400 dollars on it. That's 600 pounds of DRY food. Once cooked in water, I figure it will about triple in weight. I'm guessing I have around 6 months worth of food in case TSHTF. And 2 ceramic, gravity fed water filttration systems too.

I figure I insure all the material stuff in my life, why not insure that those that I love will have food to eat IF something bad happens in the future.

I really want to get a Kelly Kettle for fast boiling water not just for drinking but also for cooking. Boiling water for beans, rice, carrots, apples, onions, potatos, oats is not essential, but sure does help.

Wondering if, other than oils, am I missing anything?

What do you keep?
