“We were grateful to still hold this annual event that helps us to fund the Foundation’s Bite of Reality, an interactive youth financial education program that provides youth in California and Nevada with a taste of real-work financial realities, helping them learn the basics of budgeting,” said RMJ Executive Director Tena Lozano. “Despite the pandemic and school shutdowns in the Spring, we were fortunate to pivot to a virtual program that still reached hundreds of young people in both states.”
