To celebrate, Winn-Dixie is giving guests a free jumbo donut hole in the in-store bakery. Guests can choose from cake, powdered or cinnamon flavors.

National Donut Day is a 76-year-old tradition that started in Chicago by the Salvation Army to raise funds during the Great Depression.

It’s celebrated on the first Friday of June and commemorates the work of the “donut lassies,” who served fresh donuts to American soldiers during World War I.
