The first Friday in July is designated as National Donut Day. This year, the food holiday falls on June 7, 2019 and several places are taking part in the celebration.
National Doughnut Day started in 1938 as a fund raiser for Chicago’s The Salvation Army. Their goal was to help those in need during the Great Depression, and to honor The Salvation Army “Lassies” of World War I, who served doughnuts to soldiers.
Here are the places offering FREE donuts on National Donut Day 2019:
