LANSING, Mich. — National Donut Day began in 1938 to celebrate the Salvation Army’s “Donut Girls” or “Donut Lassies” in WWI, who distributed donuts to the troops to help raise morale. And we all know that a donut can be a great pick-me-up! These brave Americans posted up at or near the front lines, often serving donuts and coffee in the trenches, frying donuts in soldier’s helmets.

Groovy Donuts will be partnering with 2 local businesses to make National Donut Day extra groovy!

They will also be serving a selection of Groovy Donuts as a dessert option. Finally, custom Long Island Iced Tea donuts will be available for purchase!
“Every year The Peanut Barrel celebrates National Donut Day by reminding all "We Doughn't Do Donuts.". This year we are thrilled to partner with Groovy Donuts and declare "We're doin' Donuts....with burgers, beer, long islands or coffee." We are especially excited to team with Andrew and Monica, two young entrepreneurs, working hard to establish their business with a flair for the past and all things groovy. Originally established in 1973, The Barrel knows groovy and delicious fab donuts. So...mark your calendars and join us June 1st to celebrate donuts and burgers, the past and present, young and old. It's gonna be far-out!”
