Meh...google "Donner party".

It's funny because autocorrect kept changing it to "Dinner party".

Hah. Gotta love technology. It's so smart.

Depends on the type of zombie
Rage (28 Days/Weeks later) - Starvation stops the infection since the infected never actually "die"
African Rabies - World War Z - Essentially the basics, thing true Romero classic zombies. Starvation will just kill you, since you are only infected by the bite.
Walking Dead - Starvation will kill you, but you will reanimate since you are already infected.
Things can always get worse.
Saying they can't is inviting the universe to prove you wrong.
