Food truck tracker March 16 – March 22: Find your favorite trucks [Free read]

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.

As ongoing concerns about the Covid-19 outbreak continue to evolve, events may be canceled or rescheduled. Check back throughout the week to see what food trucks have planned as the situation continues to change.

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.
