Gone are the days of relying on social media and individual Web sites to find your favorite food truck. In conjunction with its inaugural Nashville Street Food Month in May, the Nashville Food Truck Association is launching a mobile app that lists the schedule for food truck locations in the greater Nashville area, according to the association.

“Food trucks are alive and well in Nashville,” B.J. Lofback, association president, said in a release. “Our street food culture is growing, and we’re seeing it become an integral part of the Nashville food scene.”

Using the app (search for NFTA), diners can locate trucks by name and view various food truck locations at current and upcoming locations of the more than 30 food trucks in the association. Look for food trucks at “Food Truck Fiesta” at the kickoff of Musicians’ Corner in Centennial Park on May 4, and “Eat the Street” in downtown Franklin on May 10, among other upcoming events.

Every truck will offer a one-time $1 discount on a purchase of $10 or more to all customers who download the app and mention it at time of purchase, according to the release.
