Patient Pick up 10:30 A.M.



Welcome to CDI! On the third Saturday of every month, dozens of volunteers band together to pack, transport and distribute nutritional food items to cancer patients undergoing treatment in our area. Distribution takes place from the basement of the First West Minster Presbyterian Church in Steubenville, OH directly  into the patient's vehicle.   

About us


The Cancer Dietary Initiative (CDI) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with the primary purpose of providing nutritional needs to cancer patients and their immediate families while they undergo the hardships of cancer diagnosis and treatment. Donations are the main source of income for the CDI and food is purchased locally at the minimum possible cost through the generosity of local food suppliers in the tri-state area.

Who is Eligible?


Anyone undergoing treatment with a referral from their doctor.  Clients served are residents of, but not limited to the following counties: Jefferson, Harrison and Columbiana in Ohio and Brooke and Hancock counties in West Virginia, and Washington County in Pennsylvania.

We Need Volunteers!
