Food Trucks are making dining on your feet and eating with your hands, well, chic. The trend has just begun to populate local parking lots and back alleys. But the phenomenon has been going full-force throughout the country for years. The truck operators use social networking sites, mostly Twitter, to keep their flock of foodies informed of their whereabouts.
The people behind Mobimunch.com have created a site to help eaters keep tabs on their favorites and others across America.
Mobimunch.com is described on the site as "the nation's first mobile
food service infrastructure company and online marketing channel." On
the homepage, visitors can choose a city and food type to find any truck

area map, menu and -- most importantly -- contact information and Twitter
status/location updates. The site puts
interested eaters in the know about trucks both locally and in other cities.
