Have you heard the big news? According to a CNN article published on June 3, a tasty occasion is hours away and folks are ready to celebrate. Whether you spell it “donut” or “doughnut,” this delightful food holiday is dedicated to the sweet treats Americans love to eat. It’s National Donut Day in the U.S.A., an annual food holiday observed on the first Friday in June. And you know what that means, right? Free and really cheap donuts across the nation! This year’s delicious event takes place on June 5, 2015.
Launched by the Chicago Salvation Army in 1938, National Donut Day was created to help raise funds during the Great Depression and to raise awareness about various Salvation Army programs. National Donut Day also honors the “Doughnut Lassies,” that very special group of very special gals who volunteered their time preparing and/or serving homemade donuts and coffee to soldiers on the front line during World War I. And believe it or not, those donuts were actually made in steel helmets.
Some businesses and restaurants will be servin’ up free or nearly-free donuts across the U.S.A in honor of the occasion. Now you can enjoy this fabulous food holiday without forking out a lot of “dough.” Donuts are all you “knead” to jump start your day! Sweet!
