National Donut Day's origins come from World War I and the Salvation Army Lassies.
During WWI, the Salvation Army Lassies were sent to the front lines of the war raging in Europe. Home0cooked foods were used to provide comfort and boost the morale of the weary soldiers. The doughnuts were often cooked in oil inside the metal helmets of American soldiers. American infantrymen were at the time commonly called “doughboys.”
As those soldiers returned home, the demand for donuts only grew.
