Ladies and gentlemen, foodies and gluttons, it’s time to put your stretchy pants on because The Salvation Army National Donut Day World Donut Eating Championship is back for 2023!

As we all know, the donut was born out of battlefield ingenuity and the creative genius of the Salvation Army "Lassies." And now, we honor their legacy by gathering together to devour donuts like never before.

The competition will be held aboard the historic USS Midway in Southern California, and we invite all Major League Eaters to sign up and compete for the chance to make history and earn eternal donut glory.

But this isn't just a day of indulgence, it's also an opportunity to give back. The Salvation Army, along with their partners at BakeMark, will be raising funds and awareness for programs that serve veterans in need. So by stuffing your face with delicious donuts, you'll also be supporting a great cause.

So, are you ready to take on the challenge? Do you have what it takes to beat the standing world record of 55 donuts in eight minutes? If you're up for the task, then sign up today and join us for The Salvation Army National Donut Day World Donut Eating Championship.

Don't miss out on this opportunity to celebrate good deeds, history, and the greatest pastry invention of all time. See you at the table, or in the crowd cheering on your favorite eater!

This contest took place at 9:30am local time on Friday, June 2nd, 2023, aboard the USS Midway, located at 910 N. Harbor Dr., San Diego CA!
