Albany-- South Georgia college students enjoyed a visit from the King of Pop Wednesday. Well almost.

A Michael Jackson impersonator was one of the performers who opened "Food Stock 2003" at Darton College.

The event, organized as a classroom project, helped to collect food for charities. Students were asked to donate canned goods in exchange for enjoying local bands and food.

"Oh we are so excited," said Marcia Prisant, one of Food stock's organizers. "We have been working since the end of August to get all these bands and food and hyping people up to bring two are more can goods. So we are really excited about the turn out and how many can goods we had prior even to today."

 The festivities took almost three months to plan. The four students who organized Food Stock say they were happy about the big turnout.
