Looking for some food/water storage containers (Cheaper than a Nalgene)

I'm looking for containers to store food in the bilge (under the floor) part of my boat. Something like a Nalgene. But they are too expensive.

I'm taking a trip this summer on my boat. I just rebuilt the cabin sole (floor) of the boat and I ended up with a big space underneath it that I can store stuff in. The only issue is that at times water gets in there and can slosh around a bit.
I'd like to store food there in waterproof containers. Nalgene bottles would be awesome but they are too expensive. I could probably put 30 or more 1L Nalgenes down there. At $8 a pop or so, that's not going to happen.
Any suggestions on something similar? 1L is a good size, something slightly larger would work. Screw top would be the best. Something relatively durable because they would be moving around a bit down there. And hopefully not so horribly toxic that it will taint my food with bad chemicals.
Square would be preferable to round I think.
