Maryland Republican Party chairman Dirk Haire and his wife Anne Arundel County Councilwoman Jessica Haire are sponsoring $10,000 worth of free food from local restaurants and caterers to bolster those businesses during the COVID-19 outbreak, the party announced Tuesday.

The free food, which is available to the public on a first come, first served basis, will be offered at Anne Arundel County businesses starting Wednesday. The first 40 people who contact Skipper’s Pier restaurant in Deale on Wednesday and ask for “dinner on Jessica and Dirk” will receive $25 off of their order, according to a news release from the state party.

On Thursday, the first 40 people who contact Glory Days Grill in Edgewater and ask for the same deal will receive $25 off of their order, the party said. <MORE>
