ONTARIO – To bring more Middle Eastern food to Malheur County, the Four Rivers Welcome Center is opening a food truck called Amal’s Ethnic Fusion this Saturday at the Four Rivers Health Clinic in Ontario.

The food truck, named with an Arabic word meaning “hope” or “aspiration,” has the goal of supporting local refugees through economic empowerment, community-building and sharing cultures.

Inspired by cuisines from Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Sudan and Somalia, the menu offers kebabs, shawarma, sambusa, falafel, jeweled rice, salads, flatbread and desserts. 

Customers can reach the food truck off either Southwest Fourth Avenue or Southwest Sixth Street.
