The first Friday of June is coming up, so stop thinking about your beach bod and start planning how you’ll drive, run, skip, swim or even pogo stick to get yourself a free donut. On Friday, June 5th, several donut shops across the country will be dishing out these decadent fried circles of joy in celebration of National Donut Day 2015.


This day was established in 1938 by the Salvation Army to honor those who served donuts to soldiers during World War I. We’ve created a list of some of the locations that will be participating in this food holiday by giving away free donuts to customers and donating back to the Salvation Army.

Keep in mind that donuts are given out as supplies last, so get there as soon as you can.
