Call it a donut or a doughnut but Friday, June 3, is National Doughnut Day! There are so many ways to celebrate, but we think free doughnuts are probably the best way.

So while you could indulge in the city's best doughnuts, you may also just want to get in on the freebie action.

National Doughnut Day is not just one of those made up food holidays. In 1938, it was founded by The Salvation Army to honor the men and women who served the sugary, circular treats to soldiers during World War I.

Where to snag free doughnuts:

Dunkin' Donuts:

Purchase a beverage and get a free doughnut. There are over 1,000 locations in New York City.


The brand has teamed up with the Salvation Army and will be giving out 50,000 free doughnuts and coffee at the Greenway on Broadway between 17th and 18th streets until supplies last. You can also enter a contest to win free doughnuts for a year.

Krispy Kreme:

Each customer gets a free doughnut of any variety while supplies last. You can snag one at 2 Penn Plaza, Amtrak Level in Penn Station. 


Buy four or more doughnuts and enter a raffle to win a year's supply of Dough doughnuts (So not really free, but almost.) Multiple locations.
