Kittie Food: Not to be Administered by Kitties

How do I lock a bifold door and keep the kitties out? Human access is needed but keeping them out isn't needed at all.

has figured out that we keep the cat food in the closet and how to open the closet door. She just sticks her paw under it and pulls until it's open enough for her to slip through and knock the bags off the shelf. The worst part is that she can do it quietly now.
So we need a way to lock the closet door. Our current method is to put my toolbox on the floor. But then we've got to move the tool box to open the closet and my toes are fast becoming close friends with this heavy metal object.
Is there a good way to lock the door that our cat won't foil with her too smart for her own good intelligence?
One other caveat: When my wife stands flat footed at the door her hand gets to be a good 3-4 inches below the top of the door. She can reach the top, but I'm not sure how well she'd be able to undo any locks up there.
