The tradition dates back to 1938, when the Chicago Salvation Army decided to honor women who had served doughnuts, as well as supplies for letters like stamps and pens, and home-cooked meals, to soldiers during World War I. The food holiday now serves as a way raise awareness for the Salvation Army’s social services programs.
