I have made all my own dried food ie. soups, chilli, tofu jerky. We were supposed to go to Jasper for a 7 day hiking trip but due to fires we are now going to Yellowstone.
Can I bring my dried foods?

From context, I assume you mean Canada to USA. If this is correct, the answer is yes, you can, at least if you're crossing overland.
I have gone hiking in the USA before, while living in Canada. I drove a car over the border between Ontario and New York (state). Due to my Dutch passport I had to enter the tiny border crossing office and I was interrogated by the border officer. Among other things, he asked what I was bringing, and I made a detailed description; it included dried food. This was no problem at all.
It may be different if you fly.
