National Doughnut Day rolls around each year on the first Friday in June.
Unlike some arbitrary food days, this time-hounoured tradition has been celebrated since 1938 in honour of those who served doughnuts to soldiers during the first World War.
In Toronto, bakeries and cafes are serving up special features, while others are offering freebies! See where to celebrate National Doughnut Day in Toronto right here:
