June 7 is 2013's National Doughnut Day. This is the 75th year where the first Friday in June has been deemed National Doughnut Day, since 1938 when the day was first commemorated by Chicago's The Salvation Army to help the needy during the great depression.
Since the humble beginnings of National Doughnut Day, it has grown into an event where many doughnut businesses offer free doughnuts, the kind you can eat. Click here for a link to a where-to-get-free-doughnuts list.
For those who can't get out to enjoy a free doughnut today or those who just don't wish to ingest the calories, perhaps you can get your fix from the dozen tastily and artistically rendered doughnuts by artist, Kenny Scharf, as shown in the photo with this article. In case you are wondering who the blurg the artist Kenny Scharf is, click here to find out more about Kenny Scharf.
If that doesn't do it for you, perhaps it would be fun for you to visit the virtual Donut Shop that also displays doughnuts as art. Or maybe you would enjoy a visit to The Donut Insider, A Holesome Experience. This is where the insider through words and photos is
"fighting for equal opportunities in the food pyramid in order to provide a more holesome experience for the world."
Who says you can't enjoy National Doughnut Day without having taken a single bite of an actual doughnut?
