On National Doughnut Day, which was Friday, the Salvation Army of Lodi distributed dozens of donuts to first responders and veterans in Lodi.

Some of the doughnuts were prepared by the Salvation Army Culinary Arts program graduates, including a former military veteran.

The recipe for the doughnuts is similar to the one prepared by Salvation Army volunteers during the World War I era.

The Salvation Army Culinary Arts program is housed in the Hope Harbor Shelter in Lodi. In its first six years, more than 60 students have graduated from the program.

The first National Doughnut Day was celebrated by the Salvation Army in Chicago in 1938 to help raise needed funds during the Great Depression and commemorate the work of the “doughnut lassies” who helped make the doughnut what it is today by feeding the tasty confection to American soldiers during World War I. The doughnuts became synonymous with the Salvation Army, as well as the American soldiers who were returning home with the nickname “doughboys.”

Tory Ross is a captain in the Lodi Salvation Army.
