"Yes We Can" has taken on new meaning.

Some of the country's top talk show hosts are riffing off President Obama's campaign slogan with a campaign of their own in support of hard-hit local food banks.

Dr. Phil, Ellen DeGeneres, Bonnie Hunt, Jay Leno, Craig Ferguson and The Doctors are asking audience members at their shows to donate canned goods to help re-stock the L.A. Food Bank, as well as agencies nationwide affected by the economic downturn. The goal of the "Yes We Can" campaign: to collect 12,000 cans of food a week through April.

Ferguson joked, "I was ecstatic, as we often encourage audience members to leave all heavy, metal objects outside the stage." In the tradition of lounge comedy, he added, "audience members are still free to bring fresh food in to express their distaste for the comedy."
