Every year on the first Friday of June, National Donut Day is celebrated.
National Donut Day began as a way to celebrate the female volunteers, known as The Doughnut Lassies, who were serving donuts to soldiers in World War I. The Salvation Army was the first to serve the soldiers on the front lines of Europe. It is the home cooked foods provided by these brave volunteers that gave morale boost to the troops during the war.
The donuts were even cooked in oil inside the metal helmets of the soldiers. infantrymen, especially the American soldiers, were commonly called “doughboys”!
