    As part of the proposed project, smokers accessing support from a food bank will be offered a free e-cigarette starter kit. It is hoped it will help people save money and improve health if switching from normal cigarettes. The project is being rolled out in Hertfordshire where several food banks have already stepped forward to take part. Jim McManus, the director of public health at Hertfordshire County Council, said he hopes it will be up and running by the end of the year. It is estimated that switching to e-cigarettes could save a smoker with a 20-a-day habit more than £70 a week and reduce many of the harmful effects of tobacco smoking

    Question....Who would be the entities that would pay for these kits, or would they be donated by e-cig vendors??
