If you have a minute today and feel like starting off the giving season on the right note, you can make a donation to the food bank during the Twelve Days of Charity at Rutherford House.

Along with enjoying the wonderful traditions of the Rutherford family — including wood-oven baked cookies, crafts and a cup of apple cider — you can make a donation of a non-perishable food item for the Edmonton Food Bank.

The Rutherford House is open Tuesday to Sunday. Admission is $12 for a family or $4 for adults. Children six and younger are free.

The Twelve Days of Charity runs to Dec. 12.
