Pinot, Pigs & Poets was founded in 2010 as an effort to combat childhood hunger by directly benefiting the Completely KIDS weekend and after-school food programs. It raised $30,000 in its inaugural year. Over the past decade, the success of Pinot, Pigs & Poets has allowed Completely KIDS to increase the number of children enrolled in the program and the number of items sent home with the children each weekend. In recent years, the proceeds raised from Pinot, Pigs & Poets have consistently exceeded $275,000.
