Food truck tracker Jan. 20 – 26: Find your favorite trucks

WILMINGTON — The food truck tracker is a place to find where your favorite trucks will be this week. It lists events open to the public, not catering events for offices and private parties.

Some events are not scheduled until later in the week, so check back for updates!

It’s also worth remembering food trucks are usually at the mercy of the weather — check the link to the particular food truck before you head out, most post updates on their Facebook pages.

A special note, this week six local food trucks will compete against the Food Network’s Tyler Florence. Proceeds from the good-natured competition will benefit GLOW academy in Wilmington. No disrespect to Florence, but we’re rooting for the local teams. Good luck to Poor Piggy BBQ’s Goin’ Ham, T’Geaux Boys, WilmyWoodie, Bill’s Front Porch, Catch the Food Truck, and Cheese Smith. (If you want to catch the event live, tickets are available here.)
