While National Doughnut Day may sound like just another excuse to fill our Instagram feeds with drool-worthy close-ups of our favorite treats, this particular food holiday may be the best of them all. This Friday, June 3, will not only celebrate the mother of all decadent desserts but will also pay homage to the awesome women volunteers of World War I.
The holiday was originally created in 1938 by the Salvation Army to honor women who provided soldiers with home-cooked meals, clothing repairs and, most important, doughnuts. Today the holiday is not only a day to honor these awesome army “lassies” but also an excuse to score some amazing deals at your favorite doughnut shops.
