Today is National Doughnut Day! Started as a fundraiser for the Salvation Army during the Great Depression and in honor of female volunteers who provided home-cooked meals and doughnuts to soldiers during World War 1, it has evolved into a day to celebrate doughnuts of all kinds.
Here are some ways to celebrate in Jersey City (including opportunities for free doughnuts):
Specialty doughnut shop The LoDG is taking same-day orders up until 12pm! You can also use promo code DDAY to take advantage of their buy 2, get 1 deal where for every two doughnuts you purchase, they'll add a free one to your order. Vegan options are available. https://www.thelodgdonuts.com

Krispy Kreme is giving away one free doughnut of your choice to every customer, no purchase necessary.
For something more traditional, Stony Hill Farms will be at the Journal Square Green Market today from 2-7pm with their special apple cider doughnuts.
If you want to continue the celebration over the weekend, head to The Grind Shop to get your fix. Every weekend, they offer a rotating selection of Doughnut Plant doughnuts that should not be missed.
Happy National Doughnut Day!
