Meal Moth, Pyralis farinalis
Moths belong to the order of insects called Lepidoptera which includes their close relatives, the butterflies. It is believed that there are some 160,000 species of moths. The Meal Moth thrives because it benefits from its association with humans, which makes it a synathrope.
In this case, its larvae (caterpillars) feed on stored food like grain, hay and straw.
