Warrnambool and District Foodshare is after your loose change rather than food cans as it gets ready for Foodshare Appeal Week starting on August 19.
Executive officer Dedy Friebe said Foodshare needed cash support from the community to help it continue distributing food hampers.
"This is our sixth annual appeal and we are going to put it onto the community to help with cash donations," Mr Friebe said.
"It costs us a lot of money to store, refrigerate, transport and freight the food, and if we can get some cash donations from the community it will be a really big help.
"It's something we can't run away from, we have to say to people 'we do need money to make this happen'."
Foodshare is asking businesses to have a gold coin whip-around in their workplaces on Friday, August 23.
"This will give us a cash kick along to allow us to continue the work we do with Foodshare which is getting bigger and bigger every single month," Mr Friebe said.
Warrnambool and District Foodshare currently provides nearly 2950 hampers per year to people in need, or 176 meals per day.
In total, it has distributed over 91,000 kilograms of food, most of which comes in as donations.
