CANCELLED: Bite of Reality

students at app station

Bite of Reality provides an opportunity for students (ages 11 to 18) to make financial mistakes in a realistic, but safe, environment. Teens download an App and run through a simulation on their smartphone by visiting various interactive stations. Teens are each assigned a fictional occupation, family, income, and various debts. They must then use the “family budget” to purchase their life’s needs while faced with challenge decisions as they learn their income may not always align with their desired lifestyle.

These events are FREE but registration is required! Events are offered every 6-months.

In light of the latest directives from the California Department of Public Health to protect public health and slow the rate of transmission of COVID-19, the City of Mission Viejo is canceling or postponing several upcoming events and programs.

The state department’s new guidelines call for canceling or postponing – for at least the remainder of March – all large gatherings that include 250 people such as concerts, conferences, and professional, college and school sporting events. The guidelines also include postponing or canceling smaller gatherings held in venues like crowded auditoriums, rooms or other venues that do not allow social distancing of six feet per person.

The Orange County Credit Union, which partners with the city to hold informational workshops and events, has notified the City that they will be canceling the upcoming Bite of Reality Program, scheduled for Friday, April 10 out of an abundance of caution. We hope to reschedule this event at a later date.  

For more information call 949-859-4348, x5722 or check out this video testimonial of the program!
