Albany - A South Georgia college holds a day of music, peace, and love in hopes of collecting food for the hungry. Wednesday was Foodstock 2002 at Darton College. Two cans of food was all it cost for students to come out and listen to bands.

"The event started a few years ago as a protest against the high cost of cafeteria food. But, it changed into a food drive," said student coordinator Jeremiah Lockhart.

All the food collected goes to local charities. Nearly a dozen musicians and bands performed. Students had already filled one big box with canned foods before the first note was played.
