What's the best way to find help for baby watching / around the house (for a couple of hours) for a mom with a infant?

I have a 4 month - mom is at home with him all day. She is a bit overwhelmed and can't find much time to prepare food and eat / take a shower, essentially do anything either unattended or longer than 5-10 minutes.
So I am looking for someone to help out my wife for a few hours (maybe cut up some fruit/watch the baby for a short period of time), not necessarily a nanny or babysitter. A high school student would be fine (even recommended by my pediatrican). I am new to my area and don't know anyone with older kids.
Any ideas on where to find someone? Preferably where I could find or post online?
I've tried checking craigslist but I don't need child care.
