We hear about random food holidays all the time, but did you know that National Donut Day was actually started by the Salvation Army during WWI?? Celebrated annually on the first Friday of June, this year marks the 75th anniversary of the holiday that honors the “lassies” who first served the sweet treats to our armed forces. Today, thousands of donut shops sporting the National Donut Day poster will keep the tradition alive and donate a portion of their sales to the Salvation Army. So go on and buy a dozen. Or two. Who says eating donuts is bad for you?
