Cuteness in downtown SLO

Mindful Mothers, a group of 10 local mothers and their children, on Thursday hosted their second annual Munchkin March benefit for the Food Bank Coalition of SLO County.

The mothers costumed their children, decorated their strollers and wagons, and paraded through downtown San Luis Obispo to a pizza party in Emerson Park, collecting monetary and canned food donations.

Mother Jessica Romero said that, though the group started as an informal playgroup for the women’s children, “We wanted to do more outreach to the community, to teach our children how to be charitable and giving.”
