HOUSTON --Today is National Donut day and yes, that means you can get some free donuts The idea was established by the Salvation Army all the way back in 1938. You can get a free donut at Krispy Kreme, Dunkin' Donuts, and Shipley's today. There is a catch though -- you only get a free donut with a purchase, like a drink at Dunkin' Donuts.
Be sure to check out your local donut shop, as other bakeries across the nation are sure to be celebrating.
By the way, donuts aren't on the new food plate unveiled by the federal government yesterday.
