National Donut Day 2022 deals: Anywhere to get free donuts today


National Donut Day is back on Friday, June 3. It lands in early June every year to bring you tons of discounted and, sometimes, free donuts.

Before National Donut Day was a holiday that featured free donuts from Krispy Kreme, Dunkin’, Tim Hortons, and more, it had a reason to exist. It was created in 1938 to honor the Donut Lassies of World War I, a group of women who volunteered with the Salvation Army to boost the morale of soldiers.

One of the ways to boost morale was to serve donuts to soldiers using the very limited resources they had. “[Those volunteers] met a group of soldiers from the US First Division,” Doran Cart, senior curator at the National WWI Museum and Memorial in Kansas City, told Thrillist. “They really wanted to give the soldiers something that was homemade and not just sweets or cigarettes or things like that. So they got some of the bindings back, which were quite simple at the time.”

Today is a day when that legacy lives on through donut shops handing out treats. Here’s our running list of popular chains across the country where you can pick up a free hot donut.
