Yes, 5 lbs of flour will fit in this 6 qt food container with some room to spare. Based on the site below, 5 lbs of all purpose flour equals 4.54 quarts. Flour Amounts Conversion Calculator: http://www.traditionaloven.com/conversions_of_measures/flour_volume_weight.html
It would not be a problem to store flour in this container, in fact, I recommend it. Lids are not included but I have attached several below that will fit. I also attached an ingredient bin that may work a little better for storing flour. It holds 40 cups of ingredients and comes with scoop and a sliding lid. https://www.etundra.com/kitchen-supplies/food-storage/food-storage-containers/lids/cambro-sfc6-camsquare-6-and-8-qt-red-cover/ https://www.etundra.com/kitchen-supplies/food-storage/food-storage-containers/lids/cambro-sfc6scpp-camsquare-6-and-8-qt-seal-cover/ https://www.etundra.com/kitchen-supplies/food-storage/ingredient-bins/rubbermaid-9g6000-wht-prosave-40-cup-ingredient-bin/
Lids are seperate but worth the price. Perfect for storing anything. You will not regret your purchase. I have one 6 qt with lid and am going to purchase more.
