Washington Village CookbookWashington Village Cookbook

One unifier over the years has been food

As one of the oldest public housing complexes in our nation, and the oldest in Connecticut, Washington Village has seen a great many residents since its cornerstone was laid in the year 1940. Families of adults and youth of all ages from countries across the world have made Washington Village their home, creating a community rich in cultural and ethnic diversity. This diversity also extends to the culinary arts.

In 2012, after the devastation created by Superstorm Sandy, a decision was made to replace and rebuild Washington Village. With the generous support of the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) through the Choice Neighborhood Initiative, a new, efficient, resilient Washington Village is being created. The goal is to protect and preserve the housing and personal enrichment opportunities provided to the residents of Washington Village and also to preserve the character and unique personality of this community. This collection of recipes is part of that effort as we create the new community: Soundview Landing.

Download the compilation of recipes collected from residents of Washington Village, along with HOU and NHA staff.
