Since 2010, ORCHARD At The OFFICE has been delivering fresh fruit to businesses throughout north Texas. Our mission is to assist in the health and happiness of our community, one bite at a time. There’s always been a special affinity for runners in our organization: our Marketing Wiseapple Chris Buchanan’s wife, Chauncey, is a certified personal trainer who has completed several marathons and ultra-marathons, and Chief Banana Kevin Long’s wife, Amy, races regularly and has completed a marathon herself. So when our finance assistant Leah Hinton informed us that the Dallas Running Club’s Erin Jett was looking for a banana donor, we were all too happy to assist.

The Dallas Running Club is the largest all-volunteer running club in America. It was founded in 1969 under the name “Cross Country Running Club of Dallas” by Tal Morrison, and its membership has grown into the thousands. The DRC hosts eight races a year and sponsors the “DRC Half” – an annual 5K and half marathon. Runners come from all over to compete in these races, and after all those miles, they need lots of replenishment. That’s where ORCHARD At The OFFICE comes in. The February “Love the Loop” 5K/15K required 320 pounds of potassium for over 900 runners!

DRC Volunteers set out bananas for hungry runners at the February 2016 "Love the Loop 5K/15K" at White Rock Lake.
