As if you needed another reason to eat doughnuts, a fancy charitable version of the treat will soon become available at all six locations of Federal Donuts.
Mural Arts Philadelphia and Federal Donuts are teaming up to launch a Mural Arts Month doughnut, available Oct. 1 to 8. A portion of the proceeds from the eight-day Berries and Cream special will benefit Mural Arts' Art Education program, which provides in-school and after-school arts-based programming to more than 2,000 students at 25 sites across the city.
The doughnut is a classic spiced cake topped with a tart blackberry glaze and a sweet cream drizzle. Its green-streaked design, scattered with white sprinkles, is intended to mirror this year's branded Mural Arts Month' colors and aesthetics.
Mural Arts Month unfolds across October as a celebration of the nation's largest public art program, dedicated itself to the belief that art ignites change. The annual festival brings more than 25 free events to spots citywide, and now, a new doughnut to enjoy.
Federal Donuts will sell the doughnut for $2.75. The treat will also be served complimentary at three Mural Arts Month events: the panel discussion for To the Polls on Oct. 1; the Dreams, Diaspora, and Destiny Mural Dedication on Oct. 9; and the Legacy Dedication on Oct. 20.
