Where to get free donuts on National Doughnut Day 2019

Food-centric holidays seem to occur nearly every week. Not long ago we celebrated National Pretzel Day, just last week was National Hamburger Day, and we countdown to National Coffee Day every year. But unlike the obscure origins of these holidays, National Doughnut Day goes way back. The first National Doughnut Day was officially established in 1938 by the Salvation Army’s Chicago branch. The chapter revived the donut making tradition as a way to provide much-needed cheer and raise funds for people in need during the Great Depression. The day honored the women who made doughnuts for the soldiers during WWI as a way to boost morale. At their peak, the women could make and supply up to 9,000 doughnuts per day. National Doughnut Day has since become an American tradition and continues to be celebrated the first Friday in June. Many national and local doughnut chains offer freebies or discounts…
