National Donut Day 2023 in Rochester NY: Deals and Freebies

Friday, June 2, is National Donut Day.

Although half-baked food is the holidays — it seems like every day is different — there’s a touching history behind this annual observance. During World War I, the Salvation Army sent women near the front lines in France with coffee and baking supplies to boost the morale of the troops. In 1938, the Salvation Army honored the women by declaring the first Friday in June as National Donut Day.

It’s a tradition for many Rochester-area businesses to mark the day with freebies and other specials. They are available while supplies last, so it’s best to visit early.
